May Iris Blooms

I finished this block on our trip to Boston but haven't gotten around to blogging about it until now. I chose to add the Iris because it is a flower I love and it tends to bloom around our wedding anniversary.

The Iris symbolizes faith, wisdom, valor, hope, light and power. It leads us to higher inspiration and psychic purity.
At the root of the Iris I added more treasures for the bounty the ocean can bring to us with it's life giving nature.

The photo below is the background with the first 9 blocks on it. I still have a lot of work to finish the background for the piece but I really love how it is all starting to look.

I agree that your piece is really coming alive. Each month's piece looks like a magnification of what lies below. I'm really looking forward to seeing the tree come to life. Beautiful work Angela!

I don't know how I missed this post, Angie... Sorry... The finished iris is so beautiful and I'm beyond blown away by the picture of the whole piece. What an amazing journey you are on here and what a blessing this commitment to yourself must be for you!!!!!
