So many of those photos are not good quality. I think they were taken with the (new at the time) Coolpix camera. That camera and I did not get along -- it now has a new home. I went back to my old Konica Minolta DiMage 5 mp camera -- and then trolled Ebay for another for a back-up camera. Couldn't find a G530 (the 5 mp) -- but did find and purchase the next verson, a 6 mp. It takes pictures as good as the 5 mp.

More than you ever wanted to know about my camera odyssey!! Rolling on the floor laughing

I'm really disappointed in the quality of these pictures. I kept trying to make the Coolpix work. At least you can see the colors on these wonderful Irises. Shrug!

*Copper Mountain* -- from the early 70's. This was one of the first six Irises that I ever ordered. It came from Schreiner's, in 1977. I still love it.


Beautiful *Beverly Sills*!
Thumb of 2014-01-22/Muddymitts/07464e

*Blue Reflection* -- another of the *first six*


*Feminine Fire*
(You can see from the condition of the leaves here that the unending rain last Spring has started to affect the
foliage. I was worried that I'd lose rhizomes -- and I did. Sad )

*Terre de Fue*


*Happenstance* -- and clump of same.

Last year in a swap I had my choice between 'Copper Mountain' and 'Rusty Magnificence' and I chose the latter. Looking at your picture of CM I may have to do go back to that trough.

Sorry -- it was this shot of *In Your Dreams* that won the HM in the photo contest. I liked both pictures -- had a hard time deciding which to submit.


Bonnie -- I'll have to go look at Rusty Magnificence -- but you would love Copper Mountain, for sure.

I think I chose RM because it had more gold in it but your CM is very bright. I will order it. Your photo of 'In Your Dreams' is beautiful. Are the falls blue or lavender? Pardon me for asking but so many iris that look blue turn out to be infused with lavender so I always ask someone who actually grows the iris about the color. I know that color may change with region, climate, etc. but, if it was created with lavender infused falls then it is good to know.

Another shot of *Pirate Ahoy* -- this Iris is stunning!


*Dance Recital*


Another shot of *War Chief* -- this is a gorgeous red Iris.


*Poem of Ecstasy*

My old NOID purple Iris that I refer to as *Royal Purple*. I don't know where or when I got this one -- but I have it planted in various places in the garden. It contrasts beautifully with my yellow, pink, white and orange Irises.
