Hondo Iris Farm
We visited this weekend, and it was a delight!
Although the iris do not bloom in late summer, they are selling the bulbs right now.
Please, visit their website at: http://www.aliceseelydesigns.com/hondoirisfarm/welcome.html#click
It is unassuming from the road, then you pass through this gate.
There are things to delight the senses everywhere you look.
This is truly the work of artists.
There are tableaus everywhere you look....
Of Course, outside, the Iris is the star of the show.... There are some great photos of them in bloom on their website. They have some amazing colors and color combinations.
They sell the ones they have planted. Every color of the rainbow, just like the goddess for whom they are named! The owners were there, greeting and making us feel so welcome. Alice Seely is well known for her art and jewelry. They have a store with her items for sale as well as the flowers.
With the warm welcome and the beautiful grounds, it was a relaxing visit.
