Since Iris is the Greek goddess for the Messenger of Love, her sacred
flower is considered the symbol of communication and messages.
Greek men would often plant an iris on the graves of their beloved
women as a tribute to the goddess Iris, whose duty it was to
take the souls of women to the Elysian fields.
—Hana No Monogatari: The Stories of Flowers

just a night shot of an iris… on my film camera, again.

the song i picked will have to be: Goo Goo Dolls - Iris [youtube.com]

It's beautiful! I love the purple, it's so deep. The lighting is great too. I didn't know that about Irises, thanks for that info! I'll have tell my niece that one since she's been reading up on Greek Mythology. :)
