The town of Dresden, in Northwest Tennessee, has an Iris Festival on the first weekend in May. Part of the festival includes a flower show. Below are some photos from this year’s flower show as well as some of my favorite iris from around the area.
“A flower’s appeal is in its contradictions — so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance, so small in size yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect.” ~Terri Guillemets
“I love the smell of rain and growing things.” ~Serina Hernandez
“Why, then, do we dread the clouds which now darken our sky? True, for a while they hide the sun, but the sun is not quenched; He will shine out again before long. Meanwhile those black clouds are filled with rain; and the blacker they are, the more likely they are to yield plentiful showers. How can we have rain without clouds?” ~C. H. Spurgeon
