In Greek mythology Iris, the Goddess of sky and sea, travelled on rainbows bringing divine messages to mortals. That is one impressive CV. Iris was also an avid fashionista, sporting an impressive pair of golden wings. Her personal life was equally impressive, Iris was married to Zephyrus, the God of the west wind, and had a son, Pothos. Something to reflect upon when you next see an Iris in the garden.
