- The Iris takes its name from the Greek word for a rainbow, referring to the wide variety of flower colors found among the many species. This lovely flower was part of an arrangement Cindy received today. I took several pictures of interesting spring flowers in this great arrangement from Patrice and Bloom, the Art of Flowers in Norfolk. Canon 40D, 1/200 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 400, 50mm macro lens.
