Purple Rain Irises II

I received an email from Argyle Acres Iris Farm this week reminding me their season opens April 10. The iris rhizomes we ordered from the farm last year are growing beautifully in our back yard, and every morning I run and to see if the flower buds are starting yet. In just a few weeks, I am hoping to have my own beautiful iris garden.

In the meantime, it's a real treat to know that one of the largest, most amazing iris farms in Texas is just a few miles up the road from Flower Mound. I can hardly wait until the farm opens so I can put on my Iris Papparazzi hat again!

Wouldn't I love to see that, an iris farm! It must be just dreamy!

Lucky you to have the iris coming up already. Such inspiration for a beautiful painting : )
