thank you to the generous hester's at wild iris rows in tennessee.

received my first iris box of the season consisting of :

5-6 'caribbean cruise' 2- larger and the rest were tiny increases with fans . burseen m 2010.


3 'kind hearted' . t.johnson m/l 2002

bonuses:

ernst m 1996 (2x)

and ?? either 'fire fettle' or 'fire feffle'. i couldn't find either in the db. any one know of this iris?
Thumb of 2018-06-29/shizen/ab2072 ah hah, we have a 'fine fettle'
in the db sans photo. deforest 1974 white w/lilac border

Thumb of 2018-06-29/shizen/7e6ba0 wow! look at the number of 'caribbean cruise'. hope this doesn't mean it's exteremely prolific, or the opposite end that it is difficult to grow? but i am thankful for darnell and greg's generosity!

I got a box from Schreiners yesterday, but no irises were in that box, but a few daylilies were. nodding

Barbara, Schreiners took over Bill Maryott's introductions, didn't they?
It’s okay to not know all the answers.

Daphne - I am pretty sure it means Caribbean Cruise is prolific. Most Burseens are! Nice box from nice people.

Great box of irises!!!!
Its a great day when the first shipment of plants arrive at your door. Im aiming for the same reaction to my retail and trade shipments.
My shipping season is just around the corner --- and just in time for a heat wave according to the forecasts a week out Sad Angry
I have serious heart and blood pressure issues that are exacerbated by heat. Wish me luck Green Grin!

We're in the mid 90's with the heat index over 105 due to humidity. My poor gardens need to be worked in or I will never be ready for boxes.

Wouldn't it be great if we had robots to do the digging and planting for us. I hope the weather improves for you Tim. Crossing Fingers!

Timothy ~ Please take care of yourself. We want you to stick around a little longer. I have been noticing similar symptoms when I go into the heat as well.( I have been having a lazy day today.)
