Neither of us had been on Steele Canyon Road so we took a side trip to the lake. Much to our sprprise, about 2 miles down the road, we found Napa Country Iris Gardens in full bloom.
Of course she said, we have to stop, we we did. To say we were blown away by the blooms would be an understatement. If I had not left my camera at home, there would be picts. Check out the blooms on their website.
Check out new releases Golden Gaga or Teasing Tiger, only $50 a bulb. My favorites were Jolt and Coffee Whisperers, at a reasonable $6.00.
The Gardens are are only open for another week or two. It's well worth a trip and is only about an hour from Sacramento.
