PICT1875PICT1876PICT1877PICT1882These days irises are in fool bloom , but it rains and rains.So I’ve picked an iris flower to put in a vase,before they all get soaked.And it really looks fabulous! All I have to do now is to wait for the rainbow!

Iris stands behind the seated Juno(right) in a Pompeii fresco

In Greek mythologyIris (pron.: /ˈrɨs/; Ἶρις) is the personification of the rainbow and messenger of the gods. She is also known as one of the goddesses of the sea and the sky. Iris links the gods to humanity. She travels with the speed of wind from one end of the world to the other,[1]and into the depths of the sea and the underworld.

  1. I love Irises! Recently, I’ve decided to plant them in one of my empty front flower beds, near my rose bushes. But … I’m going to have to wait until Fall to plant. So hard to wait!
