I'm a Charley's girl and loving it!
This is for ALL you Iris lovers! We have a new game to play. It's called (drum roll please.....) NAME THE IRIS

Mitt is an IRIS grower and hybridizer. He grows some of the most beautiful Irises in the USA.
He has pollinated a couple new ones and they have big beautiful seed pods on them almost ready to pick and grow a baby from. The special thing about this is NOT ONLY DO YOU WIN THE SEED POD, BUT YOU GET TO NAME THE IRIS WHEN IT BLOOMS. It will be eligible to be registered and named by you as the owner of your very own IRIS.
Now How cool is that to have your very own plant to carry the name you choose. NO ONE else will have one like it.
Imagine being the parent of a pod baby!

Here is the link to see the parents of the pod.
The first pod was formed as a cross between MONSOON MOON (pod parent) and CHINESE WHISPER (pollen parent)

This is a link to the web site to show you about registration and how to go about it.
http://www.irises.org/registration.htm

The second pod is a cross between Coffee Trader ( pod parent ) and Temple Of Time (pollen parent )

Coffee Trader--

Now what happens is you play this game, you win the pod, you plant the seeds, you grow the Iris and then you name the iris for real. You register the Iris as your very own.
Now look at the parent Irises and think what the baby plant would look like in your mind and what would YOU like to name that Bloom. What name do you think it would look like?
So NOW go ahead and start picking names for (POSSIBLY) YOUR BABY IRIS!

THIS is the LINK to go to for CHATTING. http://cubits.org/MEKOSGAMES/thread/view/26068/#new_post

Lets keep this thread clear just for the names you choose for the seed pods.
You may post as many names as you like and GOOD LUCK!!!!!
