Double back and head east on Los Angeles Avenue and go north on Bradley Road, which lopes through citrus groves dotted with expensive homes. Just past the 2-mile mark, slow down for a view of a 35-acre iris-and-daylily field. Then, in about 2 miles, shortly after Bradley intersects with Balcom Canyon Road, you'll come to Greenwood Iris + Daylily Farm's display field (9:30-4 Sat Apr-Jun; 8000 Balcom Canyon Rd., Somis; 562/494-8944), where you can buy the same flowers you saw earlier.
