Day 59: Message of the Iris

“The iris is the floral herald, the bearer of good tidings and warm wishes: ‘My compliments. I have a message for you.’ In classical mythology, Iris was the goddess of the rainbow, the link between heaven and earth. She was also the messenger of the gods; clothed in colourful robes, she brought messages of hope to mortals on earth. Like the rainbow, the iris possesses a multitude of colours, every tone imaginable, all delicately painted in sky-washed hues, and so its emblem, ‘messenger’, is an inspired one.” (Source)
