I sent Tom Johnson an order for the sale-priced iris, but I haven't heard back from him yet. I guess he is still finishing up the regular season orders. I ordered a lot of SDBs, IB Code of Honor, TB Bashful Princess (because I'm afraid it won't be available next year), and two TB introductions, Lavender Breeze and Misty Sunlight (sheer self indulgence). If he has sold out of the introductions, no biggie, but I really want Bashful Princess and Code of Honor. This is the only order I put in this year, because I got too many door prizes and rhizomes at our club sale.

I am sure that all the regular season orders were sent out before this started as we are promised immediate shipping. Did your order add up to $100 as that is a requirement. And how long has it been?

I sent mine in 2 days ago and have not heard anything yet. But I am guessing he is pretty busy with all the sale orders.

@Jan That's because we deal with "artificial intelligence" quite often & pay it no mind...
But that newfangled "Pegasus", has really made me begin to wonder, about what this world is coming to...

Just got my order list from Thomas. They had everything I had wanted!! Hurray! Hurray!

Many of those I got were ones I saw in bloom. That's what I get for going to Oregon in May! Hilarious! Hilarious!

Hilarious! I meant too many new irises from door prizes and club rhizome sales to leave room for iris purchased from hybridizers. I will have to crowd things a bit to make room for the Mid-America order.
Such a problem!

Andrea, I can only "wish", I had that problem, of too many door prizes !
It's all of those other, life "problems" I'd like to do without & could claim I do not have enough space for them all. I'd gladly give them all away, as "door prizes" ! Smiling I do hope everyone got what they wanted!

I was belly laughing , about that comment, so much, I could barely type !

I've been flirting with the idea of ordering a few mainly wanting Blue Bird of Happiness but have resisted so far. I took home so many from our Utah Iris Society Sale and Auction that I'll have plenty of new ones to see next spring. I've been pulling my tomatoes. They've grown in the same bed for several years so they need to be rotated to a new bed. I'll rework the bed with fertilizer and compost and other organic matter and leave it fallow over the winter and then it can be an area to plant iris and daylilies next summer. An old Everly Brothers song is Dream-Dream-Dream......

I'm still waiting to hear about my order - I get paranoid and wonder if I didn't send the email correctly (I have a new computer and I'm just computer illiterate enough to screw something as simple as mail up, lol). But reading that people are starting to get responses today is encouraging.
Give me land, lots of land, under starry skies above. Don't fence me in.
