We make an annual visit to a small Iris farmette in Deming. The grower fills a small plot with hundreds if different irises.
The weekend we chose to visit was the perfect time of first bloom, plus the sun was shining and everything looked and smelled wonderful.
You can take a check list and wander through the rows of flowers and pick the ones you want to order, and in the autumn you will receive a phone call that your iris tubers are ready for pick up.
So many colors to choose from.
The grower is dedicated to her flowers - always keeps the plot looking fabulous. She has open house on weekends during bloom time.
All the irises are labeled so you can make your choices. Even if you are not buying, there are always photographers taking pictures, and artists with their easels and paints.
It is a fun trip, not far from home, and I'm glad we didn't miss it this year.
