Iris Farm Visit...Pure Heaven!

This post really does not need words, other than to tell you that yesterday my brother and  I drove about three miles outside of town to a locally owned iris farm. The family lives there and has an acre of 400 varities, and 60,000 flowers growing on their land.

 I  joined a throng of mostly women, a few men and kids walking between rows and rows of blooming beauty as you will see as you continue down this page.
 It was breath takingly beautiful. I took a bezillion photos (over 200 really)...
 and I hope you can enjoy them along with me. The smell was wonderful too. That you'll  have to rely on memory for yourselves.

 I wasn't sure what these little "hair nets" were for...I was too busy taking it all in to ask.

I might go back today and sketch and paint...
I hope you enjoyed your stroll
through the iris'.

PS: Today would have been my mother's 100th birthday had she lived this long. She would have loved the iris'.
