The weather is perfect, and the irises are at their peak. If you don’t get to the Presby Memorial Iris Gardens this weekend, it’s not our fault. We’re telling you now: go.
The gardens now offer a self-guided mobile telephone tour (or you can listen here before you go), and there are picnic tables and benches for resting, artists to gawk at, plus hills and fields for letting the children let off steam. Don’t miss Fran Liscio’s fabulous show in the Walther House, where you’ll also find the Bloom Room stocked with irresistible goodies for gardeners, plus Presby’s award-winning Presbee honey. Here’s how it looked yesterday.
Presby is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and a $5 donation is requested. It’s located at 474 Upper Mountain Ave., Montclair. More on visiting here.
