Most of the pictures covered here will be for the garden trek. Other activities were conducted at the hotel or at the gardens on a separate day, such as Eileen Fiumara's Judges Training on Artistic Design Friday evening, and AIS President Jeanne Plank Garden Judges Training on Sunday morning. I’m hoping that someone else captured those moments and will post them on the Web in the near future.
The garden trek was charming. Each location was unique and reflected the qualities of each designer/irisarian and “Master Gardener.” There were many compliments heard throughout the day.
Six San Fernando Valley Iris Society gardens were featured:
Joe and Jill Bonino, Glendale, CA.
In the picture below, Jill Bonino (left) is accompanied by AIS President Jeanne Plank, and her husband Bob.
Judith and Alan Gasser, Sylmar, CA.
Cheryl and Gary Deaton, Canyon Country, CA.
Jan and Mike Lauritzen, Chartsworth, CA.
Randy and Betty Squires, North Hills, CA.

The above picture is of Batik (Ensminger 1985), a border bearded (BB) iris. The border bearded irises are shorter than the tall bearded, but bloom around the same time. The purple and white flowers have a yellow beard and bloom on stalks of approximately 24 inches. Batik's style is of broken colors, and is described as "white ground, striped royal purple B-yellow tipped white." HM 1988, AM 1990. This photo was taken at the Bonino Garden on the San Fernando Valley Iris Society's hosted Region 15 Trek 2006, on April 22.
