  3. I remember looking at your photos from last week and commenting that my mother would be jealous of all the irises! Once again, these gardens do mine justice. This week I can really see the beauty in the flowers themselves. Thank you for sharing your pictures, and Happy WW!

  18. @Sarah -- Wild irises must be so beautiful. I just spent some time in the Colorado Rockies in March. But the it was still snowing and the flowers hadn't bloomed. It must be even more beautiful then.
