Flag Iris being blown about in the wind...France!
All along the Somme where we were staying were these beautiful Iris blooms

V2 against the fence...still being blown around, and remnants of rain overnight

we went on a steam train this day and returned on a diesel one...
fun and relaxing to the other side of the Somme

Thanks for looking

Lillian

Two fabulous images Lillian. Beautiful colour!
The word 'iris' is taken from the Greek name for rainbow because the iris flowers come in so many different colours! Smile

I prefer 'On the wane' to flagging, Lillian. No matter, Irises are one of my favourite flowers.
V1 for the screen full of detail and vibrant colour.

An unexpected pleasure to see a flower from you, Lillian.
One of my favourite things is the rainbow, as you probably noticed from my avatar, and this flower is named after Iris, the Greek goddess of the rainbow, who would take messages from ‘the eye of heaven’ to earth by the arc of the rainbow. The iris of the eye is named after her, too, to reflect the many colours of the eye.
