Happy Iris Day!

May 8 is Iris Day and to celebrate it here are some of the Iris photos I have taken recently. The word Iris is derived from the Greek term for “rainbow” so I’ve added as many of the colours as I have. The Iris is the state flower of Tennessee, symbol of Brussels, and flower for the 25th wedding anniversary. Brussels celebrates the Fête de l’Iris (Iris Festival) this weekend 10 and 11 May.
