did say that you expected first year bloom. I didn't believe they would. I
am glad that most did even though they were small.
what you mean about LAs being a challenge to photograph. I had to retake almost
all of the LAs I photographed last year and a few of the ones taken this year.
There are a number of folks on the LAiris group who have really mastered
the art of photographing LAs. Literally hundreds of outstanding photos were
posted this past bloom season. The SLI has just issued the first LA iris
illustrated-but-not-hyperlinked checklist. Next year the checklist will include
all of this years new photos and be hyperlinked. The checklist is on a CD
available for $6.60 (US).

The LAI did wonderful here. I was much
pleased. I recall (again with a flawed memory) sayin' or wishin' I'd
said, most of them would likely bloom the first year under my growing
conditions. Regardless, most did.
Ten of the thirteen bloomed.
Pleasantly, they were properly labeled as best I could tell from searchin'
photos too. Only have one photo of which I'm proud though. LAI present a
whole new range of photo difficulties for accurate depiction of the bloom
nuances. I sure do like 'em and am proud of every one of the plants..... well
done old man, well, well done!
