Haiku: Anemone Aphrodite and Adonis

Long and slender stems
In buttercup family
Tears of fallen love

Haiku: Early iris

Bold little iris

Welcome showy blues of blues

Linger till spring comes

Flowers give such meaning and beauty to our lives. The iris got its name from an ancient Greek Goddess who used the rainbow to bridge heaven and earth.
