You will never see a prettier place when the Iris' are in bloom. The owners spend months readying this beautiful garden for the public each year. The grounds are impecably maintained. Take you time to spend some time there. Walk slowly, take pictures and when you need a little rest, there are benches right out in the middle of the garden. The outside world is not visible from inside this huge garden. Here's the part you won't believe . . . It's Free. I missed this for years. Now our family goes at least two times a year!!

You will never see so many beautiful flowers at once as when this garden is at full bloom. Besides thousands of iris, poppies a foot across, gorgeous lupines -- your eyes are just overwhelmed. I just wandered in the rain, taking photos and staring.

When the iris are in bloom, stop here to admire the countless varieties of color and shape grown just north of Salem. (From I-5 the fields are ribbons of blues, purples, whites, yellows....) A walk through the old-fashioned garden shows off these amazing blossoms as well as companion plants. You can use an inventory list to mark the specimens you want to purchase; tubers are delivered at planting time in the fall.

The gardens have a mother's day event, breakfast, and you get to tour rows and rows of beautiful iris flowers. There is a catalogue and you can pick and choose right then what you might like to buy for next season's planting. While we loved the food and the flowers, we felt like the Iris bulbs were overpriced for us.
