Rippling River

mikescMay 9, 2009

Rippling River opened today, three blooms. WOW! This iris is stunning. I must say that this is as pretty as any blue I've seen. This is the fun part for me--seeing new flowers for yourself, as opposed to pics online or in catalogs. Sometimes you're disappointed, others you're blown away!

I hadn't posted any pics b/c I found out a couple of months back that someone had copied quite a few of my photos that I'd posted over the years without my permission and was selling them on his web site. The copyright notices had just been sliced off the pictures it seems. What kind of creep does this?

The photoshop software that I have doesn't have a way for me to watermark the photos (not that I've discovered, at least)

I think that is terrible. Is there anything you can do about it? We will really miss your pictures. Can you say what web site it is so that I can check and see if any of mine are on there? If not, that is okay. Really sorry to hear.

His name was Millette; he was (is) up in Canada. When he started getting angry e-mails, he took them off of his site. Of course, who is to know if or when he will put them back up again or on a different site.

I know that he took some photos from various people who post on Dave's Garden site. If you do a search for Millette and Iris on Google, you might be able to find it. From what I recall, the site remained as it had been, except for the removal of those iris photos. I seem to remember that he had taken numerous daylily pictures as well.
