Annual iris party delayed one week
“We have a problem. The iris party is next week and we have no blooms yet!” Jim McGrath said.
He and his wife, Nina, Meriden, have rescheduled the 14th annual iris party.
The party will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 25.
“Hate to do it, but Mother Nature’s in charge and since most people come to see the flowers, we’d like to have some flowers for them to see,” he said.
They have over 850 varieties of tall, bearded iris along with many other perennials and wildflowers.
“Bring spouses, friends, kids,” the couple said.
Light refreshments will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The address is 501 S. Palmberg Street. People can park across the street or around the corner behind the Meriden Funeral Chapel. The chapel rear parking area abuts the McGrath yard. A golf cart is available for anyone who may need it for mobility.
