Happy Acres Colors

Everything is really popping here. I took several pictures in the past week and before I’ve had time to post, everything has changed. Last year I posted an iris count. Not sure I’ll do that this year, but will show you what’s blooming. But before I do that, yesterday was Demo Days at the Master…
