If you love irises, you won’t want to miss this presentation. Not just a hobby for these two; well, maybe a hobby that grew into a love for growing and hybridizing irises. Additionally, Chuck has been a judge at iris shows for 15 years. They will also be telling us about an international iris event right here in 2017.
