Happy Iris Day!

The 8th of May is Iris Day! Okay, okay, I know it’s already the 9th but it’s never too late to congratulate and say something nice. So happy Iris Day everyone!

This unique, tall flower produces nectar for insects and is celebrated for its distinctive beauty. With over 300 species, the Iris is an excellent feature in garden landscapes, with a variety of colors.

I was finding and photographing lovely Iris flowers for the last couple of weeks.
Here are some pictures of the first and last Iris flowers to bloom this year. I found blue, purple and white colors.

Nature is the best artist, isn’t it? More iris photos:

Did you know that an Iris flower has great spiritual meaning in different countries? It is a symbol of creativity, great power and good news ^^

Have a happy day, full of only good news 🙂

Lovely Lilac in Bloom!

The lilac is in bloom now and smells utterly divine. I do love it so much! The lilac season is one of my favorite things about spring – the most fragrant time of the year.

Here are some photos of beautifully blooming purple and white lilacs
I found while walking in parks, woodland and even in flower markets.
It was very pleasant to be around lilac bushes because of their delicious scent – in fact I could smell them before I saw them!

All Things Red

Did you know that red is one of the top two favorite colors of all people living on the Earth?

Another interesting fact. Red is the most popular color used on flags in the world. 148 flags (from 192) include red (over 77% of all flags).

I like red as well – often use in my paintings and drawings.

These Beautiful Waterlilies…

Water lilies are one of the most beautiful and elegant plants in the world. They symbolize different things in different countries – rebirth and optimism, creation, fertility, purity and pleasure, peace and spiritual enlightenment, sexuality, abundance and innocence, etc.

These colorful photos I took last summer in Tbilisi Botanical Garden, gardening center ‘Gardenia’ and some other places.

…And I’m looking forward to time when I can go for waterlily ‘photo hunt’ again.

Have a nice time,

Shorena
