Large clump of Iris doing it's stuff

This Plane tree is massive and the house you see behind it and the fernery where built around it. You can see the pulmonite from the old fernery in the forground.

As previosly commented on I think these winter flowering Irises are just flamboyant and beautiful!and remind me of that rather cheesey Albert Camus quote. There are few other winter flowering Irises; Iris reticlata vars and Iris lazica. I dont have any pics of the later but a recent trip to Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park I spotted a couple of nice varieties of reticulata, Cantab and Harmony which I have in my garden also (harvested from B&Q in the bulb sale
