| From AIS Bulletin #229, Spring 1978 Introducing WHISPERING BREEZE (Dennis '78). TB, 38", ML. Rippling Waters X 69-23: (Inv. Whole Cloth, Superlation, Song of Songs, Twenty Grand & Golden Garland). This pastel beauty has pale violet standards and falls of pale violet shading to very pale violet below yellow beard, and yellow shoulders. Both stands and falls are laced and lightly ruffled as if touched, ever so gently, by a vagrant summer breeze. 69-23 is from my yellow/blue line, so Whispering Breeze should also produce bicolors when crossed with them. Three branches and terminal. Sdlg. D75-11. $20.00. Paul Dennis.
