Thanks to you and the others for help to identify the Older Style Iris that came from my mothers farm.
<What program did you use to add the text pointing out details? <I liked the
<lines and arrows leading to the point on the iris.
The program I used is Microsoft Power Point. It is used to make presentations. This was my first and I found it user friendly. I had the program convert the slides to JPG formate so they can be used in other ways, like here. I'm sending three other slides. I took the pictures with a Sony TRV730 Handycam. It lets me do 1.2 MP close up, still shots, which I like. I would like info from anyone on any dig, higher MP still camera that will do close up shots, like this, with out extra lenses.
Slide 12 is GODDESS OF LUCK, Niswonger 96
Slide 14 and 16 are JESSIE'S SONG, Willamson 83
I'm new in iris (three years) so you old timers here let me know if anything is in error. I have a couple that show what I understand to be bad form and others with good form if there is interest.
Thanks again Mickey. Have a great day,

OLD VIENNA is another possibility for your Older Style Tall Bearded Iris.
The colors in my image are a little brighter than yours, but the one you
sent looks more like it does in 'real life' than mine does.
What program did you use to add the text pointing out details? I liked the
lines and arrows leading to the point on the iris.
I acquired OLD VIENNA in 1959 and it is a very hardy iris - it has survived
and multiplied with many years of neglect in this Mama's garden. Can
anyone tell me any more details about it?
Another possibility that I had at one time was BUFFAWN, (Andrews 1940) but
it was a paler version than this. I do not have a picture of it. It is
HIPS which says it has a tangerine/orange beard and flaring
falls. Although I thought I still had BUFFAWN, I don't recall mine having
a tangerine/orange beard and the picture shown on HIPS doesn't resemble
what I thought was BUFFAWN. I got the HIPS description since the last time
I saw it bloom so can't say for sure.
