A few days ago I had the happy experience of visiting the garden of Utah Iris Society President Nancy Cook. There is an extensive display of modern iris which are obviously well grown. It was a real pleasure I hope you enjoy....

Thank You! for the photos Paul Thumbs up . It is a beautiful example of how irises can be planted in an urban garden and how great curves look compared to straight lines.

This evening I visited the equally fabulous garden of Mary Durtschi. It was a riot of Daffodils and tulips earlier in the spring. Now other flowers including many well grown iris keep the garden bright and cheery. Choosing best between Nancy Cook's and Mary Durtschi's garden would be an impossible. Both are amazingly beautiful. Words of admiration fail for these two ladies and their gardens.
