For iris, that is! Don’t miss an opportunity to visit this fun iris farm, Iris4u Iris Garden, right in the heart of Denver. My DH and I visited just last Sunday and were so impressed by the beautiful grounds, the huge array of iris offerings, and their well organized business. (Note: this is NOT a paid endorsement, I just love to pass on any fun and new garden info that I come across!) All of the plants are labeled, and with their excellent catalog in hand you can learn the basics about each variety. Visit the Iris4u website to get the scoop on location, viewing hours (thru June 21 only) and sales policies. Of course, I was so shutter happy that I took photos without getting any variety names. Guess you’ll just have to discover them yourselves!
Another fun garden activity this weekend (Saturday, 9-4) is the annual Enchanted Gardens tour of northwest Denver. The historical neighborhoods here have some wonderful and eclectic gardens, most of which are designed and tended by the homeowners. The tour is a benefit for the Conflict Center; go here for more info.
Enjoy beautiful June in your garden, too!
