IRIS


"Thou art the Iris, fair among the fairest,
who, armed with golden rod
and winged with the celestial azure, bearest
the message of some God."
                                   ...Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

One of my favorite flowers. Thank you and the quote is from my favorite poet. You rock, ha.

Aww, thanks! Glad I made your day. I occasionally just like to post something like this, a pretty picture and some beautiful words to go along with it.

Aww, I've just planted an iris that someone gave me. Work starts in my garden this morning so I will be able to fill it with more flowers and veg soon.

That's awesome, aren't they pretty? And I love that people have given you flowers and plants. That means so much more huh? Can't wait to see it blooming!
