Flower Gardens: Part 2

After our delightful visit to the Adelman Peony Gardens,
Gentleman Farmer and I were a little bit hungry.
Being totally unfamiliar with the area, we just started driving.
We didn't find anything to eat yet, but
after just a couple of minutes we saw a sign saying
"Iris Gardens up ahead".
Of course we had to stop in.
Down a very long, winding gravel drive we came to a field
with a small, but quaint iris garden, food for the soul!

Tomorrow ~ Heritage Roses
(and, don't forget, tomorrow morning is the drawing
for my 100th Post Give~Away! Last opportunity
to become a "follower" and enter the drawing is
midnight tonight!)

The flowers have already appeared in the land;"

For each picture I looked at, I kept saying, "Oh that's gorgeous!"
Was that a "black iris" I saw?? Just beautiful!!!!
Can I go with you next time? LOL!

What a delightful discovery. There must have been one in every color. Thanks for taking us along. Although I know pictures just aren't the same with something like this.

Thanks for stopping by to share in my laundry lesson.

Dear Lady Farmer,

Don't you just love when the Lord does that? He is so good! Imagine 'stumbling' upon Iris Gardens, what a blessing! They sure are gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing with us :)I am anxiously awaiting the roses :)

Have a beautiful day in the Lord!

Dear Lady Farmer,

What lovely irises! Ours were pelted by hail and rain, and didn't do very well for us. Did you have a chance to smell any of those in the garden? It's strange, but our purple ones smell like grape candy, the yellow ones smell like banana candy, the brown ones smell like rootbeer, and the white ones smell like cream soda. MMM! And no calories!
