What a nice surprise!

I've wondered for years what those spiky leaves in the front shade garden are. They came with the property. After three decades we know! Iris danfordiae. These very early iris only stand a few inches tall. They're ofter planted with I. reticulata, which has much the same habit but is blue. And yesterday I noticed our new neighbors have planted a bed of those. Another nice surprise.
