The irises were all in flower. Up the long 
slopes and in the rounded hollows of the hills 
they stood in millions, close-growing ; a carpet 
of pale purple ; an amethystine sea from which 
the olive-trees raised their silver foliage and 
twisted, moss-grown trunks. Erect upon its 
tall stalk each flower stood majestic, springing 
proudly from its sword-like leaves. 

They broke in purple waves against the very 
walls of the little white farmhouses, and, as 
the breeze passed over them, it stirred their 
surface as the wind might ruffle the surface of 
a lake. They crept into the copses among the 
young oak-trees. The clusters of stone pines 
on their straight, slender stems, the groups of 
cypresses like sombre plumes, the thickets of 
bay and myrtle breaking the even flow of them, 
were but as rocks against which the water 
lapped. Even the patches of corn, usually 
supreme in a landscape, seemed as a mere em- 
broidery upon this royal robe of purple, or 
as "the Islands of the Blessed" set in an 
enchanted sea.
