This blog began in February of 2010. I began with the intention of creating a photographic journal of the evolution of the gardens at Valley View but just as gardens evolve so do blogs. The Iris and the Lily has grown to encompasses wider, hidden and overlooked worlds.
In recognition of growth and the organic nature of creating, this blog continues to evolve as have the gardens.
Not only does it encompass the wider, hidden and overlooked world, it also encompasses the inner world of thoughts and ideas of the gardener and sojourners.
