Pictures of the Dykes medal garden as well as some newer iris in the far garden. All but about 15 of the Dykes medal winners bloomed this year.

Beautiful gardens. Love them backed by the dark of the evergreens.

Beautiful irises there, neighbor! You are just starting to bloom in Cadillac? I am down to my late bloomers, everything all kind of happened at once after this long, cold winter.

Beautiful Jack and Marie!!!!

I love Cadillac and haven't been there in years. My brother got his very first hair cut in Cadillac when he was 2 years old and that was many, many years ago.

Your garden is looking well. Sort of like a display garden.
