I have a feeling it is a vendor's display gardens. The video really doesn't say. Wish I had all that lovely room.

Welcome to everyone. We all have the like or love of irises and we can all appr4ciate how much work goes into a nice looking set of grounds such as that in the video. The music is also good. Grew up listening to music like that every once in a while.

I looked at the rest of the videos the poster had. One of the others was about the "Roswell City" fire department and another was about "Gato Mountain". This took me to New Mexico (there is a Roswell Georgia, but they dont have a Gato mountain).

I then checked "The Iris Farm" and tagged it with "Roswell". That produced "Hondo Iris Farm". I looked at their website and then their facebook. I noticed the picnic table, how the rows of iris were situated in the video vs the websites, and lastly the statue.

Wednesday is my "Help Desk" day/morning in which I am "supposed" to be near/on the phones taking calls. Surfing the web fills the time; and I like a challenge (even though this was an easy one!) nodding
