Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Barker - Iris Flower Fairy

I am Iris:
I'm the daughter
Of the marshland and the water.
Looking down,
I see the gleam
Of the clear and peaceful stream;

Water-lilies large and fair
With their leaves are floating there;
All the water-world I see,
And my own face smiles at me!



Irises are wonderful garden plants. As the word Iris means rainbow, irises come in so many colors: blues and purples, whites and yellows, pinks and oranges, browns and reds, and even blacks. The genus Iris has about 200 species and is native of North Temperate regions of the world.
