   Check out Neomarica spp. The only one I'm familiar with is a showy
blue-flowered weed that's readily available in the greenhouses here (just
let on that you noticed it blooming), but I see Southern Perennials & Herbs
(http://www.s-p-h.com) has a yellow one as well and that there are maybe 15
species total, all sub/tropical.

> The orchid I wrote about yesterday is called "Walking" or "Drooping Iris"
> around here according to a lady Miz Anne talked to last night. Anne had
> taken an arrangement of Amaryllis and statice to the show opening at the
> art gallery and the lady had brought an arrangement of the orchids I had
> talked about. This gives me a starting point but does anyone have any ideas.


better go pretend to study for this 100-level Intro PC Databases final
that I took (having once _written_ a respectable relational database)
just to keep my student group insurance.
