I is for Iris
A Princess in the garden
and a Goddess in Greek Mythology
The personification of the rainbow and a messenger of the gods.
Iris was the goddess who linked the gods to humanity, traveling with the speed of the wind from one end of the world to the other.
When she was delivering messages to humans, Iris traveled on the rainbow.
Look at the iris of the eye! It is quite natural that it should be called after the Greek word for 'rainbow'.
And the Iris flower, because it reflects the many colors of her rainbow, also received its name from this goddess .
Take the rainbow express over to ABC Wednesday and enjoy the many posts which "I" inspires, thanks to Mrs. Nesbitt.
