pointed blue-eyed grass

there is Sisyrinchium angustifolium of the family iridaceae:


this flower was found along West Street, by the cemetery, in Jackson, Mississippi. this flower is said to bloom in the spring and summer months. this specimen was taken on march 20th 2007 at 4:52 pm. this is technically winter, however, it is well know that in Mississippi, winter generally ends the last week in february or the first week of march. it is also well known that Mississippi has very little influence upon the structure of calenders and delineation of seasons.

this plant is native to North America.

some of the prettiest plants are in cemetary's....i think there's something profound in that.

How are all the flowers so fresh? When I go to find flowers in the wild they are ususally chewed on and brown around the edges. :-(
