As a kid I thought irises were called lilies. Mostly because German is a weird language and a purple iris similar to this one is called a “spade lily”(Schwertlilie). Later learning French at school there was the traditional fleur-de-lis symbol which is meant to symbolise a lily but to me looks like an iris, further cementing my confusion… The two plant species aren’t closely related at all apparently…..lucky I love both and only need to still do a double take every time I see either! #yousayirisisaylily #stareatartnotwalls #iris #fleurdelis #germanlanguage #greetingscarddesign #buyartonline #artforyourwalls #lilaclove #lovepurple #birthdaymonth #edinburghinteriors #discoverart #botanicalart #giftset #styleitpretty #brightboldhome #gicleeprint #ukartist #artisthome #schoenerwohnen
