I learned a new plant!

I'd never seen these before. Had to do a bit of googling, but figured out that it's an iris crocus.

Both these varieties were in the same yard. I stumbled on it when I took a detour on my bike. I think I'll have to go by that house later in the year to see if they grow anything else interesting.


  1. Ooo. Thanks for the botanical name. I'll have to chant it a few times to remember. Iris reticulata. Iris reticulata. Iris reticulata! ...Sounds like I'm trying to learn a magical spell :)

    I don't know how I missed that post of yours...
