Congrats! I'm pretty sure I'm also at not more than 10 vendors (probably fewer)... sounds better than when we count the number of irises, doesn't it? Hilarious! Hilarious!

Liz - that is not bad for you! Big Grin

Aiken - We have a thread on here with the 2018 orders. My complete list is not on there but much of it is listed. But it will give you a great idea of how crazy we are when ordering. nodding

I have a lot of work ahead of me. I ordered a TON of irises in the past couple of days, and they are on their way. I am so excited. Hurray! Like Bonnie said to Tim about his list, I will feel the same about mine when they come in. I hope that in the next few years it won't seem like I got TO carried away with my orders. Well if it does happen, I'll be sure working hard. (weeding, watering, digging, transplanting, etc.) But my blooms will impress my neighbors though! Big Grin Oh yeah they already have, Karen stopped by yesterday to take a look at them and to take some pictures of them too. She was nice enough to offer me some of her irises. And hey you know what, I have two acres to spare. Why not? Smiling

In return, I am going to order Karen a package of irises and bake her some brownies or cookies and surprise her with them.
