SHOW: TCIS Queen of the Show

Our annual Tri County Iris Society show was held yesterday, in Lansing, MI.
The flowers are late blooming this year, but entries were more varied, as there were still a few SDB's, and plenty of IB, BB, MTB's that could be shown. 
Many folks were lamenting that they had very few TB's that were ready, but still an impressive number of varieties to please the eyes and nose! 
Lots of artistic designs and WHOA the number of junior designers was impressive! 
Queen of the Show:
Dakota Moon, a Schreiners 1992 introduction 
shown by D. K. Weaver:
The Queens court consisted of:
Swingtown, shown by B. Brochu
Habit, shown by P. VanConant
Five O'Clock World, shown by P. VanConant
Superstition, shown by M. Bartel
Raspberry Frills, shown by M. Bartel
Stepping Out, shown by D. K. Weaver
This was my first show and I was totally blown away that I placed 2 specimens in the Queens Court.  I had 2 others, Elainealope & Master Touch, that were considered but put back. 
Of course I saw a couple of cultivars that I can't live without and hope to obtain these this fall!  Several club members requested to do some exchanges for Elainealope and Habit.  (Hope I have enough to go around!)
