Rosalie Figge Drooling I think she's probably a must have for me at this point. One, for her great colours, and two for her reblooming ability. Great pic, Mika!

Oh, Lilli, I've noticed! He's added photos of many Mid-America 2019 intros - just when I said I wouldn't, couldn't afford any of this year's new ones... Crying There's a be-ruffled pink that dazzles!

Was there a song called Sussudio ??


...answering myself...yes. there was, Jan. Phil Collins - in 1985 - Sussudio is a made-up girl's name, according to Prof. Google. It's so repetitive that a fraction of a brain cell remembered it!

I've been saying I won't buy any new irises this year, but I'm very tempted by this one:

Nice, Carl! Anxious seems like it is a really good rebloomer. I will have to find that one too at some point. Rolling my eyes.

...And all of these new intros. Lord in Heaven above...help me. Hilarious!
