iris ~ the messenger of love

discovered on a walk around my mother’s yard…

sharing with color me weekly

since iris is the greek goddess for the messenger of love, her sacred flower is considered the symbol of communication and messages.  greek men would often plant an iris on the graves of their beloved women as a tribute to the goddess iris, whose duty it was to take the souls of women to the elysian fields. ~ hana no monogatari, the stories of flowers

  1. Purple irises are what are grown mostly around here, with yellow being the second favorite color. In fact, until yesterday, when I discovered some white irises, purple and yellow were the only two colors I had ever seen in San Diego.

i am thankful for any words of encouragement, i eagerly read each one, thank you in advance...
