Thanks so much for posting all the lovely iris of late! My want list is increasing and (to quote Rob) it's all your fault! Smiling

I am especially glad to see Tuscan Glow because I have been trying to find out who will be carrying it. First saw it posted on Stout's facebook page - they were discussing it, but didn't have it this year. You shot your pick at Keith Keppels so that gives me a lead! Hurray!

Now I want Thrillionaire too..... Sighing!

Up until now, Brad has been my primary enable...uh, persuader with his Iris photographs, but the images Kent has been posting from Keppel's garden have made me--not suggested to me, but MADE me--add five more to the wish list. Thrillionaire is one of them for me, as well, Leslie. Taylor Louise is another and I don't care for pink Iris! {{shaking head}} I guess am going to have to make an icon for Kent like I did for Brad and Tom. Shrug! Hilarious!

Photographs can be the allies of irises! A good photo will sell me every time.
It always surprises me when a grower neglects to get really good photographs.
Iris is the goddess of the rainbow.

I agree with that Jan. That is when they should hire people like Kent and Brad to take pictures of their iris.

I think Belle Fille was a new intro for Aitken's this year. I would love to see more pics of it.

Leslie,

Look at the database; Kent's is the 11th picture. Some are more toward red, but reading the description, the blue pictures seem more accurate.
