I am anticipating this to be a very short thread. I cannot find my list of all the iris at Thelma's. Greg had sent me the list and it is really helpful as it gives row and location info too.

Does anyone have a copy of this list? And can you send it to me? Gabe and I have plans to go again on May 5th so I would like to peruse the locations before we go.

Anyone else who may be in the area of Winston-Salem on that day and wants to meet up with us is welcome.

Bonnie - we are hoping not to have a rainstorm this time around so that we can capture better pictures. Maybe with less daisies this time around as they were everywhere. Between the mud from the rain and the daisy forest it was interesting getting through the rows.

She had quite a few historics. Not sure if the last HIPS dig cleared out a bunch of them or not, but there are a couple I really want to find.

Well, I am wishing you and Gabe the best of luck with the weather, travel and finding and acquiring those special irises that are so hard to find. Thumbs up

Leslie ~ Will you post the list right here, if someone else doesn't?

Thank You! Hurray!

Or maybe a separate thread? @Lestv

Dragon's Lair, I used to have this one, but lost it, and sure would like to find it again. I spent an hour going through some old floppy disks to find this picture, and then realized there was no picture in the data base. If you find it, I'll gladly pay to get it again.

I got it from a place called Hornbacher's in Illinois, but they quit handling irises years ago.
