Goddess Iris Gets Floppy In The Rain

PETALS on rain-drenched irises droop like the long ears of a lop-eared rabbit. Although the flower comes in a rainbow of colors and (in ancient Grecian times) was known as goddess of the rainbow, I see the bloom mostly in shades of purple and yellow in my southwest corner of BC.
