Spring is here

I've decided to break the regular flow of images of graffiti, and bring a real spring sign here:

Violet iris
Iris is the Greek name for "rainbow", thanks to the multiple colours that it can have.

Vincent van Gogh has painted quite a few of famous irises.

You can find the iris on the coats of arms of a few royal families: Florence, House of Capet, Brussels and Ukraine to name a few.

More details you can find as well at its dedicated wikipedia page:

Or you can read about it here: The Gardener's Iris Book
