Region 15 Trek 2006 - Introduction

The San Fernando Valley Iris Society was responsible for organizing AIS’s Region 15 Trek for 2006. It was held the weekend starting Friday, April 21 through Sunday, April 23.

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.
