Saturday's standout was the clump we had been looking forward to all week after having heard about it from those who saw Philbrook's 1979 bloom parade. It was Cleo Palmer's TWIST OF FATE, a luscious production of black velvet falls and light violet-blue standards with bronze beard. It must have been the most photographed iris of the convention.
