Just notice that Tempo Two website has been updated.
I cannot stop drooling over my computer.
Please turn it off before I get into more trouble.

Hey, you're right! I've been checking it every day, but I didn't go to the Introductions page because the first page is still pretty much the same. He must be in the process of making the changes, since it still says 2010-2011 on the first page and the narrative is still headed Spring 2010.

And I do have a picture of one of the new intro's that I took up at Keith Keppels in May 2010, when they were having all that rain: FIRST AVENUE.




OOPS -- My bad! I hadn't emptied my cache in a long time but just did -- and voila! The new first page is there! Sorry!

Wow, what beauties! I think First Avenue would be my first pick, but look at those ruffles on Just Witchery! Bet Betty gets that one ASAP?

Boy, wouldn't I love to! I'll have to find out if Keith Keppel has any of these beauties that he'll be selling next spring. He usually has only one or two of the new ones each year, though, and I seem to remember him saying something about JEALOUS GUY so I'll bet that's the one he'll have available.

Looking back through old catalogs, it seems like 1/3 to 1/2 of Blyth's new introductions show up in the Keppel catalog the next spring. Plus, one or two Blyth iris will actually be introduced in the catalog, as in the case of First Avenue and Jealous Guy this year and Another Woman last year. I'd guess that is because it makes them eligible for AIS awards?
