Okay, first the rules, which I borrowed from Rob's game:

I'll cross out the irises that were correctly guessed and post the answer key at the end of the guessing.
I'll also add the persons name to the correctly guessed iris(es). **IF I learn how. Crossing Fingers!

The person that gets the most correct, gets to post the next "guess what this is".

Please do not edit your posts and add, or change your guesses. Those changes will most likely be missed.

So can you guess these iris that reside in my gardens?

Good luck to all. Let the game begin!

I think A2 is Claudia Barton Blair and H5 is Thundering Ovation.
I would love to have A1, A4. C5 and E3. Hope someone guesses them.

IS H2 Jurassic Park or Edith Wolford?

I know some others, but the names aren't coming to me. It's a lot harder being on the other end of this game. Hilarious!
