And who might that be that was nosing around? I
think that it is adorable!! I love the big beards! The wording of
not quite enough buds concerns me, does that mean it most likely become
compost? I hope not!

Subject: [iris-photos] HYB: IB Blueberry
Tart x Braggadocio
This IB seedling just opened yesterday, not quite enough buds but I
am hopeful it will be fertile as I am trying to take it down into
the SDBs using some SDB seedlings with decent bud count. Initially I
wondered if I had reversed the parentage on this, but it is correct.
Blueberry Tart rebloomed or probably more correctly repeat bloomed towards the
end of the TB season here that year and I set a few pods. Its sibs are
taller and of similar pattern, but none with similar form so far. A few
more to open yet. Oh and I must confess the standards are probably open
a bit more than they would be if someone hadn't been nosing around in
there before getting a good shot.
