It was such a glorious day of sunshine
to continue exploring.
The Schreiner Iris Gardens
are just bursting into bloom
and it was bliss to wander
down the rows and look at all
the beauty and color.
I remember as a young girl visiting an elderly woman
from our church and walking around in her
iris garden. She had rows and rows of them,
like I had never seen before.
It made a huge impact on me and
I've never forgotten how I felt afterwords, like
something inside of me had expanded.
I think that is where my first love of
flowers and nature was tapped on the shoulder.
So this visit to the Iris Gardens was a real treat
of memories and fresh inspiration.
