Thank you Bonnie. Some of my pictures are great -- some are blech...... Hilarious! I still make some very basic mistakes with my camera. Blinking

Inside Job is a beautiful Iris -- it's one that stops you in your tracks and makes you come in for a closer look. I can't wait to see New Leaf -- hopefully this year. And I cannot imagine why I have no picture of Fancy Woman -- I've had that Iris since 2009. Confused

Patty -- which four did you plant? Inquiring addicts want to know!! Hilarious!

Oooh-oooh -- I completely forgot about Let's Be Friends:


I have a hard time getting a good picture of that Iris -- don't know why.

I also have Moonlit Water -- got that in 2012. If it bloomed last year, I didn't get a picture. Sad Seems like there's something else out there -- I'm still looking.

OK now -- Vapor is identified as a luminata. I wouldn't have guessed that:

Mary Ann... I got Daughter of Stars, Elizabethan Age, Spendthrift, and Volcanic Glow. I'm most excited to see this group bloom!!! And I would not have guessed Lets Be Friends was a luminata. It's very pretty!

I added Dialect, Teenybopper, Spendthrift, Fancy Idea, and Volcanic Glow last year. I'm hoping that they will bloom this spring.

Well -- those are all beautiful. I remembered what Elizabethan Age looked like -- tried to get that a year or two ago. Couldn't find a picture of Fancy Idea. Spendthrift is amazing!!

Here's a link to Keith Keppel's web page. Fancy Idea is among the 2013 introductions. This link shows his 2014 intro's too.

Ah -- it's beautiful Tom. Thanks.

Yes but Lucy -- every description out there calls it a luminata. What does Joe Ghio call it?
