What Does It Mean?

Saw this outside the house a few minutes ago.

Random rainbow trivia: the ancient Greeks believed that the goddess Iris acted as a messenger to the gods and would travel along a rainbow to deliver her messages. I assume that tradition got passed on to the Romans because even today the Spanish word for rainbow is arco iris — Iris’ arch.

Not often that I get to bust that little tidbit out.

P.S. If you haven’t seen the double rainbow video yet, go here. It’s so intense!

  1. sweet! david knew the spanish word for rainbow, of course. but even he didn’t know the origin of it. thanks for sharing. :)

  2. I’ve had several double rainbows this year. I’ve only ever seen a few in my life, so having four of them this summer has been quite unusual!
