Vendors are opening, intros are being unveiled, and enabling has officially begun for this next year! I will kick off this action packed forum with my first few orders. For those that know of my ordering habits, these will seem quite modest. I can tell you now that I will be giving up my title this season and handing the crown to some other crazy iris lover nodding Here is what I've picked up so far:

BEAUMONT RIDGE




IRIS SISTERS
new varieties to me -


duplicates for hybridizing program -

THE SHADY SPOT
Power Down - tried to order this Burseen last year from Rockytop, but had to get a refund on it.

It’s okay to not know all the answers.

Cinderella's Secret is a must see in person. It took my breath away. Gatekeeper I got two years ago, but it hasn't bloomed yet. I want to see it so badly!

I have a "Judy" list narrowed down, just waiting to see if my friend gives me a gift certificate again this year, and for which vendor. Smiling

I made my Judy order, which included some replacement iris. Instead of having her send me a refund I just told her to replace this year. Heaven knows it gave me more time to find a home for them! Will list them soon, but I see Liz and I are still ordering the same iris. Hilarious! Amazingly small order for you there Liz.

I didn't know Iris Sisters was open. Oh dear. There are some Blyths I was holding out for until this ordering season. And again Liz already ordered a few of them...... Whistling

I'm going to try hard to hold the line on orders this year (both irises and daylilies), but I'm going to have to make at least one iris order, to Nola's, because somehow I forgot to make it last year... Confused D'Oh! When they open for orders, I'll post what I ordered.

(I'm trying not to drool over some things I have already seen posted... which reminds me that there was something I wanted from Superstition which was sold out last season... Whistling )
It's daylily season!

Leslie, Judy posted some Burseens that weren't offered last year. Maybe there are one or two you don't have? Whistling Hilarious!

Love your thinking, Barbara. A smart and sneaky start on the new season! Hopefully there is still time to get in a few more orders before the new year??? Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!
