The word Iris means a rainbow. Iris is the flower of the Greek Goddess Iris who is the messenger of Love. In the language of flowers Iris symbolizes eloquence. I found this meaning of the iris flower on the internet and it is ever so appropriate! The photo was taken at the, Corkscrew Sanctuary in Naples, Florida. This little beauty thrust her royal head out between the thirsty reeds and granted the weary landscape some much needed character!
