Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Iris Farm..............

Today we went to the Four Seasons Nursery. I had Reina for the day and I thought she might like to help me make a Fairy Garden. Well, on the way I had Gerry stop at the Iris Farm. Not to buy anything, I don't like having to wait until Fall to get the Iris........but to take pictures. It is a beautiful place.

The farm is on an old farm. Its been in the same family for ever. It says so on its Centennial plaque.

The barn is wonderful and so are all the out buildings. The house too. A dream place. I would love an old farm. Not in my lifetime I'm afraid. I can only imagine what it would cost. Well when we win the lottery right?

There are just so many varieties of Iris, the colours, the names......fantastic. I could not choose, I wanted them all. I took a few pictures. I think I like the pink blush colours and the pale lavender. Oh goodness there are just so many. You can also pick them to use as cut flowers. One doller a stem. they look wonderful in a vase.

Anyway, its a nice place and although I did manage to get my pictures with few people in them it was bustling with activity. Doing a brisk business, and thats a good thing.

I really like this one. I didn't take the names because Gerry and Reina were waiting for me.

I love Irises with all of their many color combinations! This farm looks like a fun place to browse--even the silo was a good photo opportunity!

I am also a fan of old farms and the flowers are gorgeous to wake up to. I find nature to be incredible.
Truly heaven on earth.
