The printable list of awards is at https://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=0...

As you can see, double of the usual awards were given out, because of the fact that the pandemic prevented awards being given out last year.

I am so excited because one of my very favorite irises got the Wister award: Bluebird of Happiness. It is so lovely! I may not like some of the others that got Dykes or Wisters, due to gaping tops, inverted fall edges, or color combos that are not to my liking, but Bluebird of Happiness is simply pretty all over, and does wonderfully in my own garden. So, congratulations to Bluebird, and her hybridizer, Paul Black!

Neptune's Gold (Siberian), Elf Esteem (standard dwarf), and Rare Breed (arilbred) are my wishlist items from the awards. I almost got Neptune's Gold last year - love that gold signal, and the name is perfect! Elf Esteem is darn cute. And Rare Breed has that amazing round onco form.

Daisy: Thank You! I bet you were happy to see Bluebird of Happiness. I know you mention that one quite a bit. I was happy to see Don't Doubt Dalton. It's very bizarre, in a good way.

Bluebird of Happiness is truly awesome

except, I nearly had a bloom out, so I'm hoping the few babies left will grow
