Pintrest ref/ no artist given. These are my favorite colors! Living in the Southwest, we don't see Iris often, if ever. Drawing this made me feel nostalgic for my childhood days growing up in the Midwest .

The Iris has been a symbol of France as far back as the 6th century AD. It became known as the "fleur-de-lis" or flower of Louis, in honor of the king of France.
During the Rennaissance, when there was very little cleanliness in England, the orris root ( the root of some species of Iris) was used to combat odor. Orris root was steeped in wash water to give clothing a pleasant smell and was added to the wigs worn by French and English aristocracy.

What a pleasant surprise this morning !
