A small group of members visited the beautiful Iris Farm of Cindy Voss in Robertsville, MO. Her selection of iris is absolutely amazing, she has over 3,000 different cultures! I had a difficult time trying to decide which photo to use, each one was prettier than the next! My photos don’t do them justice, they are breath taking in person. We had a wonderful time taking in all the sites and Cindy shared some facts about the different cultures and care needed for iris. She loves her iris and it really shows. Thank you Cindy for a wonderful visit. You made an iris lover out of all of us.

Check out her Facebook page at Voss Iris Farm. She has many many stunning photos of her iris. You may purchase her iris at vossirisfarm on ebay.
