Some irises just take us out of the realm of rational thought. We just have to go with it, or we will be tortured with desire until we have it. Might as well give in right away, who knows, tomorrow is not a guarantee and yesterday is gone. Whistling

"Some irises"? ....I think irises in general have taken me out of the realm of rational thought...wait, that's a realm I never knew, so I don't really know what I'm talking about... Rolling on the floor laughing

My newly completed Superstition list consists of 97 TBs, 4 BBs, and 15 IBs, and I have a Mid America list too....This is hopeless...

The sooner you get an iris planted the sooner it blooms and multiplies in your garden. That is just good common sense. If you wait a year to buy it the price may be cut in half but by then you will have twice as many sooooo.......

I often tell myself that Bonnie- I may be rationalizing, but I'm ok with that, LOL.

Hilarious! yes tortured with desire
Thank You! for all of your support!
This is a very nice but dangerous club
Wish me luck today--I must concentrate on other things and try not to panic about my order that needs to get finished ASAP before they run out of irises that I *need* to have but don't even know about yet Rolling on the floor laughing

ok, that last statement is true, but there are circumstances.

1. No, my mail person did not delay delivery so they could peruse the contents.
2. No, it didn't just get to my mail box.
3. Yes, my sister-in-law had it.

I was away and got back late Monday. It snowed a lot on Tuesday and we were lazy and did not pick it up until today.

Now I have IRIS homework to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dusky Challenger was the favorite iris in the AIS poll last year. It has been for some years so 'search & you will find' it.
