Great banner Leon!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thanks folks. This one "slipped up on me" and I forgot it was for today. Anyway I am a fan of "old" irises and this one is a very favorite in the pinks. It is Vanity created by hybridizer the late Ben Hager, and introduced in 1975. It won the Dykes Memorial Medal in 1982. This is the photo I took the banner from.

The purple iris immediately caught my eye and I thought 'well framed'. Then when I saw the banner in your post, I could see the pale blue irises filling out the frame. Well done! And of course the pinks are just lovely.

Kelli you are an important part of this group; there's nothing to be shy about. And your last statement sums it up nicely. Members have given us some gorgeous pictures this year.........loads of them. That's where I've spent a lot of time just looking and admiring. And you are so right we learn a lot from the posts.
