Iris Leaves

I noticed these iris leaves in a garden,

and was struck by their bleached appearance.

Okay I'm laughing at myself. When the thumbnail picture came up on my readers list, I could have sworn this was a banana peel!

Of course now that I see them closer, I see what they really are. When did they turn bleached? Did they originally come up green?

These are such cool photos. Judy. For some reason I always cut my German iris down in the fall...although I allow my Siberian ones to go through the winter...so I never get to see this.

If I don't cut mine they usually just rot away. I've never seen this but they make for quite unique photos.
