Chasing the Blooms: Iris & Peony fields in Salem, OR


In May Paul and I visited Portland for a week. We fell in love with the “dream of the 90s” city. We loved how walkable it is, the tasty restaurants, the GARDENS! We happened to visit at the exact right time. The peonies were just about to burst, the irises were alive and kicking, and the rhododendrons were beyond beautiful. It was meant to be.

I created a little video of our trip to Schreiner Iris Farms and Adelman peony farms in Salem before I decided to go on some official Flower Adventures, so this one is a bit slower in pace, but at least you can see how gorgeous it is there.

Put it on your calendars: Portland in May! You will not regret it!

A full Portland city guide is coming soon. Stay tuned! And check out the photos below.


The peach irises blew my mind. My new goal is to plant a rainbow of irises. green-fields

The peony farms had an exhibition of all their peony blooms. It went around the full room. You can buy all of them too. grove-of-irisesformal-gardenspeach-irispetals-of-peoniesrainbow-gardensiris-farms-salem-oregonpurple-iriswildflower-fieldrainbow-gardensmore-iris-to-seepeony-3flowers-2IMG_2853 2
