Well, I'm standing their today, looking at two different clumps of
iris, side by side....And I say to myself...SELF! Don't just stand
there, cross something! Mind you, daubing is not my forte and I'm
not really sure if it will even take. I took pollen from Celebration
Song and applied to Doctor Alan...Lord knows what I will get. No rhyme
or reason why those two, other than the fact they were side by side and both
beards are tangerine in color.. Now to you professional daubers out there, I'm
sure there are certain things your looking for in an iris....Me, it was
just an impulse thing. I applied pollen to several flowers so hopefully,
something will take. All flowers involved opened this morning.
Now.... No sooner than I'm done "daubing", feeling a sense of supreme
accomplishment, does a large bumblebee coated with pollen on his back,
come flying over from just a few away after spending some time on Holy Night
and climbs right into every flower that I apllied pollen
to...aaaarrrggghhh! Oh brother! now I've got to figure out how to get
Holy Night into the parentage..LOL Cross your fingers and pray for
