1808 looks as if an enormous bubble bee had gotten stuck in the
flower, it's not only big, it looks fat!
in order to get to iris-talk I did what i've been told, get an email
to majordomo and put "iris register"
thought i might get sth back
i clicked on iris-talk at the end of your mail where there is a
list of sites
i got on it, it's great, i put it in my Favourites, so i can get
there easily, but i don't know how to relly be part of it
maybe oneday i'll see the little thing i hadn't seen that i should
have clicked on, or something else that will get me in.
there's still hope!
i understand it's not the place for iris talk here but only
pictures, still, we can talk here of the pictures, can't we?
thanks for your patience anyway
