Pretty In Purple

Pretty In Purple

At Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.

This photo spurred me to learn a bit about irises. The most interesting factoid, I think, is that Iris is the Greek word for “rainbow” and the name of an ancient Greek goddess, who was the messenger of the gods, the personification of the rainbow, and the link between the heavens and earth.
