Congrats Dirt! I love this, the blue is to die for! Perfect capture I tip my hat to you.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Thank you all!
I am so very pleased to have a photo that 'made it', just barely Green Grin!
from such an incredibly stacked field!

Marylin, it is Allium caeruleum and Iris pallida 'Argentea'
I was hoping for a nice bloom combo with the alium and iris--there was a little bit of overlap as the iris finished and the allium started this year, but that color combination was nowhere near as pleasant as the allium with the iris foliage. Fortunate, I guess, that the iris blooms got out of the way for this picture Hilarious!

This is such a striking photo in many ways. Color, textures and composition really draw me in. Love it.
