Last spring, I saw a notice in the paper about an Iris farm not too far from my house. I took a drive out to Pleasants Valley Iris Farm out in the middle of the country. It was breathtaking and run solely by a family. For about a month in the spring, they open up the farm and show off the MANY varieties of bearded irises. I chose my favorite ones and bought the yearling plants for sale in the greenhouse. This is my Midnight Caller in it's first bloom for me.

You can more information about them at

My Cabana rose that has mutated and produces both variegated and crimson colored roses.
