Please excuse my self-indulgence. When I get some more time I will include others, but today, enough about me, let's talk about ME!
Yesterday's Greater Rochester Iris Show was a big day for me. A "newbie" by iris club standards, I was thrilled to win the awards above. On the left are the prizes awarded my entry of 'Stepping Out.' This 1964 Schreiner's introduction is one of the most highly honored irises of all time. My specimen won and blue ribbon, then a "Best of Section" and finally, "Best of Show." Six of my other entries won 1st place blue ribbons, 3 won 2nd place red ribbons, 1 won 3rd place and 1 received an honorable mention.
