|Purple Iris 8 x10 acrylic on board|
I don’t grow too many flowers but I do have a lot of Irises. They are just so cool! Most people when they think of an Iris don’t realize that they come in lots and lots of different colors. The word Iris is from the Greek and means, rainbow. And that description is just so fitting. I mean there are hundreds of Iris colors. In my garden the colors take turns appearing from one year to the next. It is always like opening a present when they bloom.
Purple Iris is symbolic of wisdom and compliments. Blue Iris symbolizes faith and hope. Yellow Iris symbolizes passion while white Iris symbolizes purity. I could on and on since there are many, many Iris colors but I think I will just enjoy the colors and leave it at that.
