I started in iris in 2008 while on a trip to New Mexico. I stopped at Hondo Iris Farm and purchased 15-20 iris. My Mom always had iris and I still have three iris that she had in the 50’s. I would go to the iris show in Amarillo and I met a co-worker that I worked with years ago. Alene Arnold got me on the road to growing and caring for iris. I joined the North Plains Iris Society and I have held several positions with them. I have been Vice-President and President for the past three years. I was also Show Co-Chair for two years and Chairman for our 2016 show. Due to excellent sales in 2015 & 2016 our club is doing great. I grow more than 1200 iris in my small yard. I retired and now have the time to spend with them and they enjoy my efforts by giving me wonderful blooms. My face is always smiling during bloom season. I look forward to serving as your Region 17 membership chair. Please keep paying those local and AIS dues and you will hear only thanks from me.
