Iris - Waiting for Spring


In Greece, Iris has two meanings: that of the goddess Iris and that of “rainbow.” The Greeks say that the goddess Iris leads the souls of women to Heaven over a rainbow bridge."

The Iris is such a beautiful symbol of life and spring awakening that I thought that this image in the depths of winter would renew our hopes of an early spring.
