  11. This is the first garden I have seen that is dedicated to the iris. Rose gardens and tulip fields are very popular, but we tend to forget just how colorful and how many varieties of iris there are. Thank you for sharing with us.

  17. Beautiful blooms and as a former Jersey-ite hard to learn that I missed this all the years I grew up and lived in NJ ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ . Just "found" your blog through a comment left on La Memoire Vive, Catherine's wonderful blog on Paris. I am a NJ native as well, grew up in Union County, lived in Middlesex County and in southern NJ before relocation at a small town on the VA eastern shore, and now NH. Still have NJ ties and do get back "home." Enjoyed the Only in Jersey and Memories pages. Remembered Wild West City and Land of Make Believe visits and shopping at Bamberger's in Plainfield which also had Tepper's and Goerke 's and a Grunings as well! Thanks for the great memories and there is truly NO place like NJ and nay to those unfair raps in shows and films!

    1. I totally agree that New Jersey gets a very bad (and undeserved) rap. I'm so glad that you have fond memories of New Jersey!
