...comes from the Greek word for rainbow.
Iris can also mean:

Part of the eye
A consortium of universities managing seismic data
A song by the Goo Goo Dolls
OCR software
A movie about Iris Murdoch
Certain types of flowers

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
~ Iris Murdoch

Beautiful backlighting on this pretty iris. Indeed this spring has had its share of rainbows!

Thank you, 1er Cru! I hope spring has brought you rainbows, too. :)
