That is so pretty! Is it some sort of flag or iris?
What a beauty, I love flower surprises. It looks like a bearded iris to me.
Beautiful, looks like iris.
Like the previous three commenters, my vote is for Iris Clinton.
How the HELL did it get there, right in the way of everyone?
What a beautiful surprise.and I think Ginger is a lovely gud dug !cheers, parsnip
Beautiful bearded Iris, and they smell heavenly.
Our Irises are up too, but they are either plain white, blue, or a strange mix of purple and yellow. I'd love to have some like yours; much nicer.
Oh, beautiful iris. Lucky you!Alphie
Breathtaking! Will the walk be lined with those eventually?
Probably not. It's the north side of the house and there's not enough sun to really encourage blooming. This one probably bloomed because a tree in front of that part of the walk split and had to be removed last summer, letting in more light. Plus, we just rent. We probably won't be here much longer.
Wow! That's quite a surprise, and it matches your blog!
I like surprises like this Jennifer. Especially when things have not been so good. A flower appearing overnight means a lot.
