And this was my favorite iris of last spring. I always forget that it is a Blyth!

I finally looked at Tempo Two's catalogue on the desktop the other day. I had to wait for the full resolution one to download. I love the SDBs 'Maglissa' and 'Spice Sister' Lovey dubby

I have both of those on my wish list Liz.

199 is just the tip of the iceberg for you isn't it? Big Grin

Paul - is "I'm" on the right track because it looks a lot like I'm Dreaming. Which is lovely.

Wow this is a shock..his work will be missed tremendously. I have looked forward to his catalog and new introductions every fall it is always a treat to read through his catalogs during the winter months study his pedigrees and look at what new color combination he has created Smiling and where it came from. I'm hoping he will continue to hybridize and introduce them through Mid America it is always a pleasure to see Barry in Oregon in May.

Commercial growing/Farming is extremely hard work when weather conditions are perfect.. you throw in cold and wet conditions or the opposite heat and drought like they have experienced and it can make for a very disappointing season... Here are some of his newer ones to consider when your sending him your order Smiling
