Iris in the rain, a sure sign of Spring

Iris planted up the hillside and in two patches in the garden Posted by Hello

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

Iris was the first flower we planted in the garden and now Bearded Irises abound. They keep the hillside in place, gophers don't bother them and they naturalized as easy as birds to a feeder.

Love, your site? I found it looking for the symbolic meaning of wisteria.

I paint gardens if you ever want me to paint your garden, I work from photographs. You would not be obligated to buy the original and you would be entitled to 10% of my sale of the original.

just a suggestion? Beautiful photos!

My crocus are starting to bloom and some of the earliest
daffodils have buds. I have one tulip up,sportsbook can't remember
the name but the leaves are red striped and it has a
branching habit for blooming.

Yes, Sportsbook this is a gladiolus. No, I didn’t buy it at the store. Yes, it’s a current photo. It bloomed this week in my garden. It’s early July, in the hottest, driest Summer since the dust bowl of the ’50s. (I’ve deemed this year Summer of Hell II, acknowledging that we are doing this yet AGAIN this year. I’m not good with recidivism, I prefer Change, thank you very much to Whomever might be listening Up There. march madness It’s such a sweet bloom, with all its soft yellows and gently curving petals. Just like I would expect to see in May. It bloomed in dappled shade in my back garden. I decided to rescue it, and snipped it and brought it inside to more temperate climes.
On another note, this dragonfly decided to fly into the house today when I opened the back door. I’ve never seen one so huge, have you? To give you a perspective, the tile it landed on is 4″ wide at that point. I’m used to dragonflies under 2″ or so, this one shocked me. Fortunately, I was able to coax it back outside, no harm done.
