I don't know why I haven't noticed these ones from previous years.  They are very proliferate in the landscaping around my house and, apparently, quite popular with the honey bees.  Very pretty too.  The lime green pollen adds to the purple/green contrast nicely.  cool  They are short flowers (~2') originating from plants that look almost grass-like with their bunches of long, slender & green leaves.  Hopefully someone can venture a guess from the following photos:







TIA,
Dane

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
