Gorgeous, Tom! Thank you so much! It's been years since I've been able to get up that way to see the fields of flowers.

If you could, it would be wonderful to see some pics of the iris festival (I think that's in Keizer) or even just the iris fields at Schreiner's. If I recall correctly, the irises bloom in May. I'd almost consider such pics a personal favor. Irises are my favorite flowers. :D
