Behind on checking my E-Mail. Just found that this weekend Schreiners is having a Dwarf Iris Sale 20% off. You don't need the notice to get the discount. I'm working up an order as I had a number that I wanted from them. Just need to cut the list down a little.

I refuse to look! Hilarious! I took advantage of the earlier Tiny Tot sale because they had a couple of Blyth's that I really really wanted, and also Purple Paws.

My budget is set, my mind is too,
But I looked at the pictures... what can i do?
If I place an order then I must pay,
And how shall I fare from day to day?

I know....

I'll do my own hair, the wild look is in.
I'll sew my own clothes, (she said with a grin).
I'll cut out a meal, I need to lose weight,
And my nails will just have to be left to fate.
I'll grow my own food and then cook from scratch,
And bake my own bisquits and goods by the batch.
I'll take up knitting - a tobbaggan in blue,
and mittens, and socks and longjohns too.
I'll turn off the lights and grow wise in the dark,
Like blindsmans bluff, it will be quite a lark.

And if I grow weary of pinching each penny,
of cooking, and knitting and sewing aplenty,
I'll just think of the rhizomes coming my way
to live in my garden and brighten each day.
And when my little iris expenses are paid,
the blooms will remain....
......and the joys never fade.


I ordered eleven new SDB's. Smiling

I refused to look. The only way to ensure I say no. They have 'Spice Sister'! I might have to peek even though its late & I'm tired.

Well, I ordered ten, but surprisingly little overlap with the other orders listed above. Experiment with iciris, Tickey Boo with Bonnie and Easy Does It and Frisk Me with Lisa. I'll list mine on 2017 orders.

Hahaha. I can't blame you Charlotte, as I already had ordered mine awhile back. Had to get Spice Sister before all of you found it was there. Hilarious! Hilarious!

I actually ordered two Spice Sisters then, and two City Neon (another Blyth), Hottentot, Purple Paws, Wee Stroll, Riveting and I forget!

Love the poem Bonnie! I tip my hat to you.

I ordered Spice Sister from Tempo Two and I am looking forward to finding out exactly how it looks as the pictures in the AIS database are very different from the one in the TT catalogue.
More of that iris suspense thing! Big Grin

One thing you have to keep in mind with Schreiners is that their photos only give you hints and are not accurate for the most part. I access several photo sources before buying on their site.

Don't think I looked at it on the Schreiner web page! Will do!! Thumbs up

I always look up irises in the NGA database, the AIS database and usually also do a Google search before I order - but surprises still happen! Big Grin

That's very true, Lilli. My first iris order was from Schreiners and I got a surprise when some of them bloomed. Smiling I learned which catalogs were using enhanced photos and several of them do. I have also found that an iris grown by a vendor that is consistent in their bloom color can be different in my garden. Smiling
