The iris is, by far, my favorite flower. And iris season is so short-lived here in New Jersey, from mid-May to the very beginning of June, then it’s done. The Presby Memorial Iris Garden in Montclair, New Jersey is a wonderful place for iris lovers, like myself, to visit. I’ve been here so many times over the years. It just never gets old.

Today was a hot and gorgeous day in New Jersey and I ended up taking almost 50 photos of the irises, but the two I chose to feature were my favorites, along with the one I took of my husband, of course.
