Catalog surfing no longer enough- must see live irises
Hi iris lovers,
I must see live irises this spring.
I don't take vacations in the spring. Who would leave their garden at its peak? I don't take vacations at all, usually, to tell the truth.
But the irises are calling me this year. I'm at the end of the semester from mid-April to early May, but I might be able to escape for a few days on a weekend, or alternatively, I can probably get out of dodge on May 13 for a week when finals are over.
I'm in Southern California. Considering the schedule, which Iris Gardens would you visit? I can make it up to Oregon in mid-May, or take a weekend trip to Napa in California during peak bloom.
Any must-see gardens? Any must-do side trips?
Thank you for your ideas,
