i is for iris
i is for iris.
just like vincent van gogh, i love irises. i remember the iris plants that blossomed every year alongside the house i grew up in. i love that irises are a sign that spring has in fact sprung and i can’t wait for my iris bulb, planted last fall, to burst into color. also, did you know that some gin makers use iris flowers to add flavor and color? who knew. i haven’t illustrated any flowers for this project yet, so today seemed like a good day to start.
