I don't think Napa will ship internationally, so I have to wait until MAG or Tempo Two or some other foreigner-friendly company has them! Crying Crying Sleep well!

Thank you for the Napa Garden photos. It looks so wonderfully fragrant and sunny there. Such magical beauty in an iris garden!

Barbara didn't you get the orange striped one in the big pot? Tiger something I think?
I really enjoyed meeting everyone yesterday! It was funny when Sherry didn't immediately figure out who I was at first, Marilyn introduced me as Sue and when we all met at the picnic table for lunch, I mentioned to her that I had her name on Gina the Gypsy and she got this puzzled look on her face and asked if I was also on ATP? Hilarious!
I had just said I would try to make it but never officially confirmed. nodding

I have grandkids here today so plan on processing and sharing some photos later.

Yes it was Tiger Shark *Blush* I'm wrong again ...how about Teasing Tiger...boy my memory is failing. Sad I had a really good time yesterday, and it was so good to see Sherry and Marilyn again and to meet Suzanne.
Next year Superstition and Mariposa again?????

What a nice thing to be able to see their lovely garden - Thanks for the pictures. I ordered from them for the first time last summer, and they sent beautiful plants of 'Cosmic Celebration' to my daughter's house. They are just coming along and will bloom in a few weeks in Utah.

I love 'Air Hog' and 'Greatest Show on Earth' too. Hmmm, maybe I'll find some room in her garden for those next summer . . . There aren't very many plants I miss growing since I moved to Florida, but irises are certainly one.

@Phillipb2 I'm pretty sure the orange striped one was Teasing Tiger, a John Painter introduction.

Ok, taxing my memory. Napa had a wrong tag in the pot and did not put a new one in it before I bought it. Going to photograph it right now.

It was great meeting Sue and fun to see Barbara and Sherry again. We had wonderful picnic in the shade of the trees near the garden. I think we had enough food for all of you! I enjoyed looking at and talking with some of the artists who had come out for a day of painting in the garden. It was also nice to meet and talk with Leslie & John Painter.

The ones that came home with me were:

Jerico Springs
