Spring is definitely here in Southern California!
I had a wonderful ramble this afternoon at
Wild Oak Farms in Yucaipa.
The farm, located in Live Oak Canyon,
is home to the gorgeous Iris Gardens!
I had a great visit with the owner and her faithful,
The flowers are lovely.
I had no idea how many varieties there were...
And there are other gorgeous blooming plants
in the ornamental garden!
I love this rose SO MUCH.
There were other visitors as well...
The iris season only lasts a month and a half...
so you locals need to get out to the farm
and enjoy the riot of color and fragrance while it lasts!
(Did I mention one of the iris varieties
smells like jellybeans?!)
The irises can be visited (and purchased, along with
many interesting drought-resistant plants) at
32026 Live Oak Canyon Road
Hours are 8-5 through May 16th
