I have already ordered some TBs but yesterday sent two more orders. One to Mid-America for some of their new SDBs and one to Aitkins for some of Marky Smiths SDBs and also some Japanese. I got a start of Japanese Lion King last year and it looks good after a tough winter. I hope it blooms. I love my SDBs Lovey dubby

All mine are ordered for the season, but some aren't paid yet, awaiting "crop reports). The newest is BRIGHDE (Stewart 2013), The oldest is SWERTI ( collected, first described 1612), and the one I'm happiest about getting is BUECHLEY GIANT (Buechley 1932). There are MDB's, SDB's, IB's, BB's TB's, SIB's, and one Spuria..I have the bug BAD !!...Arlyn.

I got notified that my order has been shipped from Tempo 2, Can't wait to get them here, but I guess I'll pot them up when they get here, and re-plant them later, as it's still so cold and wet out.

I wanted Cinderella's secret, but that one was sold out, Really, I wanted many more, but restrained myself so I could order from other venders too.

Oh, we're supposed to get 2 -3 more inches today. Things are getting pretty flooded here, some roads closed, and I saw some houses flooded on Sunday when I was driving around. It rained all night here, and looks to be raining all day today too. But, it's supposed to be nice both Sat and and Sunday, and then start raining again on Monday and Tuesday. My Arc is finished, and I am gathering two of every iris, Just sit on your roof top, and I'll stop and pick you up on my way to rescue Brad in Iowa. Sad

Yup,! It's raining ! 4 and 1/4 inches in the last 24 hours, and 2"-3" sheduled for today ..Anything green,the iris ,the grass, etc.,has about doubled in hieght in the last 2 days, and the river looks huge! I haven't been out at all , but I imagine the creeks are all out, also. After last years drought, it's quite a change! Hope we're not getting our entire allottment now! I'll keep an eye out for the Ark !..Arlyn
