My bearded iris garden is in peak bloom this weekend, most of the Pacific 
Coast hybrids are finished.  The Spuria and Louisiana iris are opening, the 
evansia are still in bloom.  I have well over 1000 different named iris in my 
garden.  The ixia and ornithogalum arabicans are blooming, watsonia are opening, 
lots of roses and other stuff blooming, fruit trees are blooming and setting 
fruit everywhere, birds are nesting all over the place.  The Royal Palm show 
turkey is strutting, chickens are crowing or laying.  It's beautiful to me right 
now!  Just magical. 
My garden is still open for public viewing Fri, thru Monday from 10 am to 4 
PM the next 3 weekends.  It's free, we do this every year and every year say we 
won't do it again.  But then we forget how much work it is and get humbled by 
the notes and cards we receive, particularly from those who get their mothers 
out of rest homes to bring them here and we are told this is the only place 
they want to come to.
