Wow!  As my teenage granddaughter says, "WAY cool!"  I really like the way the rim color appears to be on the back side of the entire fall.  And the lovely golden highlight colors the edge of the haft, then continues up the lower part of the standard and appears to be on the lower inside of the fall.  It also shows itself on the bottom of the style and tips its crest, with the fall color in the center of the style.  I don't recall having seen another iris that has these particular markings.  That certainly does not mean there is none, but it certainly looks distinctive to my eye.  Is the standard color more yellow or peach, Griff?
I, too, really like your photo of CAREFREE DAYS. You could make a beautiful large framed print of that one. Very artistic.

Here's a seedling I haven't had time to do anything with  --  one reason being that it's out of the normal color schemes on which I focus, so I have concentrated on the others.  Ancestry is ROMANTIC MOOD, YVONNE BURT, and a sneaky bee.
One photo is the fully-opened flower.  The other shows the fresh color as it opens.  As I recall, the branching and bud count are okay.
Any ideas re future development?
