photo: RC: Thor

Pictured here is another of Van Tubergen's RCs.  Van Tubergen named his iris after mythological figures.  The one I posted previously, Wanadis, bears an alternate name for the Norse mythological goddess Freya, for who Friday is named (Freya's day).  Thor was a male Norse mythological figure who wielded a pretty mean hammer.  We get our weekday name, Thursday, from him (Thor's day).  However, this Thor in my garden is a gentle giant, and not all that tall.....but handsome nevertheless.
