Iris reticula "Katherine Hodgkin" 

Until a few years ago, I used to plant the beds lining the front walk with different varieties of miniature or rock-garden irises.  They bloomed early and adorable but some spark of over-the-top springtime enthusiasm seemed to be lacking.  And people always thought they were crocuses. So, for the past couple of years, I've loaded small daffodils into this area.  However, come April, a few reminders of my previous dalliance still show up.
