April 10 is just a few days away, and if you've read my blog before, you know it marks the grand opening of the Argyle Acres Iris Farm. Carlos and I have rhizomes planted and sprouting beautifully in our new back yard iris planter box - and the flowers are on the verge of appearing. Joe and Donna, the geniuses and owners behind this amazing farm, sent me a note the other day (yes a note to me!!!) saying that the flowers will be best after April 17, so I will have to make more than one trip out. It will be tough, but I think I can force myself.

For directions to the Farm, check out their Web Site!
For a 7-minute tour of the irises there, here is the Video on their site.
Enjoy and hope to see you there!

Gorgeous and I can see how this iris caught the name 'pansy' in its moniker. (I'm so swift this way! LOL) Please do tell Howie P. that I am going to just see what I can do!

Is there really an iris that looks like that? I guess so if you painted it! It's gorgeous!

Sherry, Howie would like your cell phone number. I would not give it to him, if I were you. ; )

Thankyou Delilah, I love your chicken painting, it is divine!

Roxanne you should come on over and see it lady!

Thank you Miss Joan, my geranium friend. : )

Becky, isn't that an unusual iris? I found the photo and had never seen one like it before.

Bindu I see you have lots of bluebonnets around, maybe they will last us a while this summer - we deserve them, don't you think?

Donna thank you for sharing all your wonderful garden photos, give the assistants hugs for me!
