The Presby Memorial Iris Gardens in Upper Montclair, New Jersey is the largest public garden in the United States devoted mostly to irises. The early irises are starting to bloom! I would think they will hit their peak in a week or so!

  7. I used to have irises blooming in four corners of the yard but one winter they seemed to all die. I never replaced them but seeing this blog post gives me such great joy that I should really replant some. I shall leave now to visit other blogs who have posted on Outdoor Wednesday with a smile on my face. Have a wonderful day!

    1. Many people around this area buy their irises from Presby Gardens. It's nice to see the surrounding houses with irises in their yards.

      I'm glad that you enjoyed the irises!
