Iris and Orchid
The Language of Flowers

I don't think I laid eyes on an iris before the age of 18. The flowers I grew up with were roses, chrysanthemums and daisies. Then, during my college days in Miami, a glamorous French model, showed up at a party with an iris in her hair: blue-purple petals with a velvety yellow centre. With its tall stem, iris to me is the symbol of elegance, strength and delicate beauty.

Just like irises, orchids are exotic type of flower that represents beauty, femininity and sensuality. In Victorian England, they were likened to a beautiful woman because of their perfect symmetry.
