As I promised in yesterday’s post today will be all about irises and their names. Funny names.
IRIS from Greek means “rainbow“. Iris was a messenger-goddess who rode rainbows between heaven and earth to deliver messages from Olympus 🙂 Interesting.
As I said yesterday, I’m not a big fan of those flowers. Maybe because they bloom only once a year and for not very long, but visiting Nola’s Iris Garden I found for myslef one veriety that I fell in love with:
Some of them if you know what they mean could be used as a letter/message to somebody. Like those three belowe.
It’s actually a pretty neat idea, I think!
Some of the sound like a movie or a song title 🙂
