Quote & Pic of the Day, No. 12 of 24

The word ‘ Iris ‘ is derived from a Greek goddess who rode rainbows of many colors. The Iris is a perennial which is hardy and beautiful. It is found in some 300 species with the Iris germanica being the most appreciated due to its taller size and bearded petals. The dew-laden, purple, semi-translucent petals of this Iris are especially appealing to me. Beware, though, as Iris’050 spread rather rapidly if not kept under control.                     ” Nature never did betray the heart that loves her. ”   

 William Wordsworth , poet (1798)
