The Iris Maps are Coming Along...

This week's big project - and last week's and next week's - is mapping my gardens.  Using iDraw, I created bed outlines.  The next step was to create color and shape coded markers for various classes of irises.  Labels were added. Next I used Graphic Converter to create small versions of the ID photos I use for each cultivar in my database.

As I move through this process I have had to do some more research.  One of the most profuse cultivars in my garden I have labeled as Honky Tonk Blues, but I may have to rethink that.  Ocean Pacific turns out to be something I discovered the packaging for.  Although I had a light blue identified as OP, it seems it is darker.  These are more likely to be Monet's Blue.  All this means that my Honky Tonks may well be OP.  I cannot find any actual proof of having purchased Honky Tonk.  I hope the Greater Rochester Iris Society will help me sort this one out!

  1. Glad I read this, as you sent me "Honky Tonk"! I will have to examine it closely...
