I have over 500 pictures from this short trip. The flowers were glorious, and some things on my wish list I could narrow down. Otherwise it grew longer Lovey dubby . I think I would start off with this year's introductions starting alphabetically. If they weren't in bloom, I might be able to catch them in bloom soon Sticking tongue out My pictures aren't altered excepted to be reduced sized by 75%, and a text box to prevent scamming. It was partly cloudy and about 70 degrees taken midday.

Janie, Quack Quack has two photos. Next time I post I will start it off with that one. I should end it with some group shots today.

Here is my Daring Deception blooming for the first time - really too dark for photos but will get another shot tomorrow in better light.

Beautiful photos. I know that it is to prevent scamming, but the big name running through the middle of the picture just drives me crazy. Sorry.
example is Ninja Warrior - I would just love to see the iris without "Marchin" over the standards. Especially since it is such a beautifully shot picture.

Thank you for sharing your trip there with us. Thumbs up

Except for cropping, I don't alter my photos in anyway either. I also find the text a bit distracting from the beautiful bloom(s), but I can understand why you are doing it.

Looks like you had a good time. Great pictures, it must be nice to be close enough to visit.

Niki - did you bring any lovelies home with you from your visit? Sure would be hard to decide among all that beauty.

I will decrease the size of the text next time. If it is just the watermark that Garden.org places at the bottom it is easily cropped off.

If they had Tall Bearded iris available at M-A/Sebright gardens in pots I would have taken some home with me.

Leslie, your Daring Deception and Triple Dip are lovely. I definitely want to add those to my garden in the future.

I want to take pictures of my kids all dolled up in Salem. They don't like my idea of driving back and forth in one day. I was thinking about tomorrow because it is their weekend. I was hoping to go the Schreiner's as well, and the Riverfront Carousel.

Those were Janie's shots and they are lovely!

Have a fun day tomorrow! Sounds like a great way to spend Mother's Day. Smiling (even though the kids may not agree.....)
