Not only are the Dandelions in full bloom, but a few Iris have reared their beautiful heads this spring.
We have a small batch of purple Iris in the corner of our yard. The flower gets its name from the Greek Goddess, Iris, who was the Goddess of the rainbow and a messenger on Mount Olympus.
Also known as, "Flags", the three petals often represent faith, wisdom, and valor.
Due to its three petals it is also associated with the Holy Trinity.
Though I think they are incredibly beautiful and would like to have a few in a vase, I cannot bear to cut them.
"The Earth laughs in flowers."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
