Project 365 Day 90 – Iris

I took this a while ago. The flower reminds me of an opera diva throwing her arms out and singing triumphantly.

Can you hear the music?

    Very pretty and classy! I just had to pin it! I put it under my photography folder. It’s to remind me to take pretty pictures of flowers, which I don’t do enough.

    The fragility of Japanese irises have always attracted me. In Japan, irises are symbols of heroism. The blue color of Japanese iris symbolizes blue blood. This is why iris flowers are used extensively in the Japanese spring festival for boys. Iris flowers were used in making perfumes, fragrances and as a medicinal herb too. In rural parts of Japan the iris species found near shallow water and low-lying plank bridges and are the most celebrated in Japanese art.

      Thank you for the added information – knowledge brings a flat landscape to life. 🙂

      The way that irises present different curves and dimensions is always attractive.

    You have forever changed the way I look at Irises.

    I see the diva now.
