It may come as no surprise that May is chock full of flower-oriented holidays, as the warm weather and ample rain prepares flowers for blooming. A special holiday comes but once a year on May 8th and it celebrates a lovely little flower called the iris.

Iris Day honors the attractive bloom that is very popular among both homeowners and gardeners. With the calm winter and the recent heavy rains, some of these beauties might even be popping up outside your home now. Aside from being beautiful, these delicate blooms also boast spiritual benefits in Japan. The flower is believed to ward off evil spirits and on May 8th, Japanese people leave iris leaves in their baths to ward off evil and prevent illness.

You can embrace Iris Day by purchasing delivered flowers such as Teleflora's Mod About You, which is both gorgeous and colorful. This collection of fresh flowers includes stunning lavender roses, blue iris and asters as well as accents of chartreuse blooms. The bouquet comes in a sleek and modern leaf-lined glass block vase that everyone in your family will enjoy.
