I hope you enjoy, and don't mind my kids appearing in the photos too. This is when I went crazy. It was Mother's Day, cloudy, and about 72 degrees. This I believe is Celebration Song, but I can't be sure.

There were seating areas everywhere. The place was incredibly busy.

My kids were not really cooperating. I don't have a tag pictured next to these iris, and I don't remember what they were.

I think these are Belgian Princess because I loved them so, but no label.

I won't post them all, but this year I will try to get better pictures of just the flowers too. Salem also has a beautiful Carousel by the river with carved wooden horses by different artists. They fit weights up to 250 pounds and just cost $2 or less for a ride. I got a ride for free on Mother's Day. I also was given a free bouquet of iris at the farm. There was a flower show going on, but my kids had no more patience so I didn't get to examine them.

Usually when you see lupine & irises in the same garden you know it is Schreiners' display garden. I wish that I could grow the combination.

Lovely pics, cute kids! (Yes, they don't have infinite patience for garden trips at that age - I remember my daughter well, visiting Maryott's. Even now, at age 25, she'll zip right through whatever garden and leave us eating her dust. Hilarious! )

Lovely photos! I didn't realize they grew such a variety of interesting plants. The lupines also make me think Schreiner's right off the bat too. I loved seeing the ranunculus and delphinium too, which I hadn't seen in their gardens before. Loved some of the funny faces the kids were making too, LOL.

Nice pictures, and cute kids. I planted some Lupines last summer. I hope they live and bloom at the same time as the irises.

Niki -- cute kids -- and they were pretty darned patient through *all of those flowers*.................lol!!

I have got to ask -- do you know the name of the Iris in the extreme foreground of the picture of Daring Deception? It's a glorious yellow with lines on the falls. Sooooooo beautiful!!! Lovey dubby
