Gone But Not Forgotten

Not sure what forum to post this in, but Bob Stewart, owner of Arrowhead Alpines has passed, after quite a long battle with cancer.

If anyone has read his catalogue, you know for sure he was an interesting, entertaining man.

I have purchased many of the species irises from Mr. Stewart, but certainly the catalogue carried much more than irises.

I was lucky to have had some conversations with Mr. Stewart about the species irises. What a knowledgeable man he was.

Flowers for Mr. Stewart in heaven.

I'm sorry to hear that. He was a truly eccentric and intriguing man. I loved the bizarre musings in his catalog.

That is sad. I too love reading his catalog. Will the nursery stay in business?
