Installation of Officers, Potluck Dinner and Tour of Stephanie Markham’s Amazing Iris Gardens

Stephanie’s opened her amazing gardens for the members to enjoy. Her gardens featured irises. They contained thousands of different iris varieties of all types and sizes, from tiny shade-loving species to the tallest and fanciest of bearded irises in every color of the rainbow. Some of the beds contained only irises, others mix irises in with other garden perennials. In early June, the bearded irises and many of the Siberian irises were at peak bloom, making the gardens a riot of color and texture.
