Art Of Flowers

National Iris Day, May 8th, a celebration of this one flower. I have read that this national day may have begun in Japan. The iris does have special meanings, it is a symbol for creativity, great power and good news. The Greek origins of the word iris comes from the goddess of rainbows.

I do not create a lot of flower paintings. I did do a iris painting in college but have not found that image yet. I do have photographs from my garden in MD. Iris flowers always remind me of my Mother. So, with Mother's Day coming up, here are blue iris.
