Robin - that was my thought too. If we chartered a plane, we would have to bring in as well as take out! Marauder exchange!

I start thinking of next year right after my bloom season ends. Know what does well, what you want more of, see the new intros and especially because I have been tempted by all the beautiful blooms posted by other growers on here.
Thro' all the tumult and the strife I hear the music ringing; It finds an echo in my soul— How can I keep from singing?

I normally would too but the theater is gearing up for huge movies due out near Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's taking up a lot of my time.

I have no business getting any more irises next year.

That said... I guess I have a couple in mind. (No, I refuse to look at catalogs or at what other people want... I don't need to add to the list, and subsequently to the number of pots here! Not with our water bill...)

In no particular order...

1. 'Triffid' (SF (not San Francisco) association; it helps that it is a SA) http://www.shop.argyleacres.co...

2. 'Serene Silence' (your continuing posts on this have sucked me in...lovely iris, lovely name, and I cherish peace and quiet!)

Evaluating an iris seedling, hopefully for rebloom

Serene Silence is one fine iris. Kent is enabling!

Oh Gabe! I have been wanting 'Dancing Ghost' for ages (Well, since 2012 that is! Big Grin ) and have never seen it anywhere I could actually order it, but Iris4you has a branch in Germany, so maybe, just maybe... Thank You! for the link! Hurray!
