This must be the place...
Take a minute with this photograph. Imagine yourself in the middle. of. that.
Now, let us all concur: the Dorothy that still lives inside all of us would trade poppies (and skip the poison) to wander through this field of delirium in our ruby slippers. And you can, with us, very very soon... Our Iris Study is taking place once again this May in Salem, OR, at Schreiner's Iris Gardens. Together, we will touch it and breathe it and paint it and make beautiful arrangements out of it too.
The people of Schreiner's are what truly make the place- it's family owned and operated, and they treat their blooms with the devotion of patron Iris saints, carrying the spark through three generations of Iris cultivation and propagation and love. They are a hardcore Iris farm 11 months of the year, and May is the moment that everyone gets to celebrate those months of hard work with the gift of bloom upon bloom upon bloom...10 acres of it. It is also the time we get to go worship at the Iris altar by offering our two-part Iris intensive, and we are very much looking forward to being in the company of thousands of these beautiful ladies. Join us!

And click here if you caught the Talking Heads reference earlier and need to hear the song now. (Or is it "Nothing But Flowers" that you need to hear? Will David Byrne's beautiful voice be the soundtrack to our workshop? Probably.)
