My cousin Louis in Tennessee sent me some pictures of the iris blooming in his garden. These are the descendants of some that his mother dug from my grandfather's garden more than 30 years ago.
In Greek mythology, Iris was the Goddess of the rainbow. That seems like a very appropriate name since the beautiful flowers come in so many colors.
It was a treat to get these pictures--they remind me very much of those happy days in Hopkinsville and after two unexpected days in court--I was ready for a reminder of fragrance and simplicity in my inbox.
