Bummmm-ER, Sherry. Sticking tongue out I am sorry you can't avail yourself of that part of the compensation, it sounds lovely form of lucre. Sad

Sherry, I just watched one of your videos and you and the band sounded great! Our local public radio station would undoubtedly be
deeelighted to play your music. The station has a website at kzyx.org Several programmers play country and bluegrass.
There's a big music audience up here.
Thanks!

...and here we all have irises in common!

I usually get turmeric at the health food store from the glass jars, where one scoops and weighs out what one wants. I prefer organic.

Clove and cinnamon powder is usually good from the dollar store. Most everything else is more reasonable from the bulk jars than if one gets small bottles of this and that spice or herb at the supermarket.
Don't make fear based decisions.

Just received my order from Superstition. Super large rhizomes, nicely packaged, several bonus irises as well. I had changed the order with not a problem with it. Great to deal with.

All were historics that I just received from Superstition: Amoena-DeCandolle, Kashmir White-Foster, Bridesmaid-Salter, Princess Beatrice-Barr, Rhea-EB Williamson, Neglecta-Hornemann's only intro I think, Mercedes-Verdier, Mme. Louesse-Verdier, Perfection-Barr. Several were confirmatory varieties to compare to what I have but am unsure of.

Orders are still expected from Winterberry, Bluebird Haven, Newport Natural and the HIPS sale plus 4 from Presby Memorial Iris Garden-only 29 more! And two more varieties of daylilies still to come with 7 having already arrived.

Yay! I got a box from Wild Iris Rows!!! The rhizomes are huge, and they gave me doubles of everyone that was just normal size, plus 4 Apollo's Touch because they were small!!! I ordered 15 and got 7 bonuses!!! I am overwhelmed. Happy as can be too though.

Ordered: Anything Goes, Apollo's Touch, Brazilian Holiday, Brook Flower, Kevin's Theme (enormous!!), Lady Friend (sent 2), Avalon Sunset, War Chief (sent 2), Dazzling, True Grit, Dynamite and Banana Frappe (sent 2).

Love the name of the bonus they chose! Hope it doesn't make one literally scream. Hilarious! Going to have to look it up!

Oh, it's a cute yellow guy. Definitely won't cause screaming. Nice!

I was happy. Have a full, lovely, beautimous treasury of TBs, looking now to add shorter ones and Scream will fit right in.

I have scream ordered Debra. As early as they bloom that golden yellow with bright beard will scream 'look at me!' all over the garden.
