Iris Explosion in Oregon


We were en route to Los Temos Taqueria in Salem, Oregon, when we saw them.¬†Blooming in the fields were millions of irises¬†laid out in swaths of almost every color imaginable. If it weren’t for the season, we would never have noticed, as we hadn’t in all our previous drive-bys. But, there they were in all their splendor, just up the road from Los Temos.

The fields belong to Schreiner’s Iris Gardens that also has an eye-popping demonstration garden, a true gem in central Oregon, less than an hour’s drive south of Portland, almost exactly at the 45th parallel.
