“Iris was the personification of the rainbow in Greek mythology, as well as messenger of the gods along with Hermes. She was also known as the goddess of the sea and the sky.  It was said that she traveled on the rainbow while carrying divine messages to the mortals.”

  1. Be a rainbow in someone’s cloud – what a fine way to start the day!

  2. A beautiful collection! Did you notice the crab spider on the white one?

    • yes 😉 I find him very cute. I will get over for a visit soon to see what spring has brought you, Eliza. I am staying way too busy these days and miss visiting with blogging friends. I trust your family enjoyed Easter weekend and that you are finally busy in your own garden ❤ ❤ ❤

      • Yes, thank you, we had a quiet day and dinner with my son and his girlfriend in the evening. It was nice enough to eat outside – that day it was very summery, now we’re back to ‘normal’ temps and getting rain – yes!

        • What a beautiful way to start off spring 😊 We are also welcoming the rain this week and the cooler days . You will be weeding soon , just like I’m doing these days . So much fun to see everything growing again 😊
