Iris Festival - This time a local one

05-19-10.png

The last Iris Festival we attended was in Florence in 2006. We scheduled our time in Florence so we could be there during the days that the Iris Festival was being held. Here is the blog entry I wrote about it last year.

That was then and this is now! Last weekend the Yucaipa Iris Festival was held in our area. We have a lot of irises on our property, and they are almost finished blooming, but we decided to go anyway. After all, they were also holding a gem show and a CAR SHOW! Classic cars - I LOVE classic cars!

This car immediately caught my eye (I wonder why) - a 32 Ford.

But, like the first one, this one caught my eye and was my very favorite of the day - a 37 Ford coupe.

Oh, yes, there WERE flowers. Although the planted irises were just about bloomed out, there was a cut flower show (irises and other blooms) that were very beautiful.
