We recently visited a friend of ours who has one of the most beautiful woodland type gardens. The rhododendrons were spectacular, the California lilacs and woodland wildflowers in full bloom and don’t even get me started on the iris!!
The iris were incredible! We even saw a bunny sitting under a tree nibbling on the grass.

What a delightful evening!!

      I’ll send you an email shortly!

Then I saw the thin lines extending off to the right. I guess that the ring is some kind of drag chute, perhaps for whatever vehicle made the tracks in the sand.

    • Hi Mel! I love all flowers, except for carnations, but iris are among my favorites. Not sure which picture you saw the drag chute on, but there is no driving of any kind on this property. I’ll have to back and check the post! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • The photo with the drag chute was *above* the title of the blog. I looked at the post today and saw a different photo above the title, so I guess the blog is configured to display a random choice from the library in that position.
