Basking in the sun
and continuing the visit to the Iris Gardens
Feasting my eyes on every frill and curve
Protected from the wind
Gorgeous from all sides and posing in a Fleur-de-lis shape.
Fleur-de-lis means Lily Flower or Iris.
This flower was particularly associated with the French monarchy
and it remains an enduring symbol of France today.
Perfhaps my favourite for today, pert and pretty in the sun, swaying slightly in a gentle breeze
in a sea of green stalks and poetic golden sisters.
Tomorrow there will be a change of colour
In the meantime, drink in all the golden loveliness!
