Day 151: Presby Memorial Iris Garden - May 31. This garden is a feast for the eyes when it is in peak bloom. It is located in Montclair N.J. and is part of the Essex County Park System. The gardens contain about 3,000 varieties of iris that estimated to produce more than 100,000 blooms over the bloom season. I've been photographing at the garden for the past few years and even though my collection of iris portraits has grown to more than 500, I have only catured a small number of the varieties that grow there. It is a challenge each year to photo new varieties but somehow I keep going back to my old favorites.
