en-velope!

By the way, saw your countryman Van Morrison last night. He played an excellent set with a nine piece band but apart from singing he never spoke to the audience all evening.

Do spread it around Mark, but PLEASE!!! Don't call it Iris clarkei. It isn't. I'd suggest a hybrid of
Iris sibirica. Same group as clarkei but this one's nothing like.

Thanks, Mark... I'm hoping for a goodly percentage of white seedlings!
