High Sierra Iris Garden

IMG_9089Two weeks ago while out doing errands, I pulled into the High Sierra Iris Garden driveway on a whim. My husband and I had been there for a wedding a few years ago but I had not had the opportunity to return since then. Upon parking, I met a lovely woman named Nancy who was out working in the gardens and we got to chatting. She and her family own this little piece of heaven and she lovingly does all of the upkeep. She let me know that the irises were just a couple weeks past their prime but invited me to wander around. Have a look at all of this beauty!IMG_9245IMG_9092IMG_9099IMG_9102From their website I learned that many years ago Nancy’s husband gave her a potted iris for Mother’s Day. Shortly after receiving that gift she began collecting them and then began creating the gorgeous iris gardens. What a remarkable vision she had!
