One of our lovely state parks with a formal garden situated on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific.View from Shore AcresA wild iris nestled along one of the pathsA bit more unusual is a yellow iris…Part of the more formal garden… this one caught my eye, but I wish more of the plants were labeled. I have no idea what this perky flower might be.I’ve always enjoyed the serenity of the Japanese-style garden built around a 100-foot lily pond. I finally managed to catch the water lilies blooming, though I may have been a wee bit early yet. The plants seemed to be a bit tired of the delayed summer weather this year. I plan to revisit once we’ve had some warmer weather with more sunny days.Back home, one of my lilies is putting on quite a show. Maybe I should add a touch of white and blue…I plan to stick close to home for our Fourth of July celebration. Sissy isn’t any too fond of fireworks.
