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!
