That was the one I had grabbed and had to hand it over to Marilyn, I didn't bring cash or checks. But I have a trade worked out for it. nodding

I think my favorite clump there was Midnight Tocatta. I made a huge oversight by not inviting one along for the drive to my home. Hilarious! This one is definitely going on my wishlist!

The infamous Stan Coates was also putting on a nice display...don't know why I didn't get a 'clump shot'.

I ordered 'Stolen Sweets' from Superstition. It is one of Paul Black's irises. I am glad that you all had a great time.
