I agree with everyone else that this appears to be Moraea ciliata.  Bob
Werra calls this the "crinkle-leaf" form of the plant.  He thinks it's a
really nice-looking form, and I agree.  I've also seen a crinkle form with
white flowers, a straight-leaved form with pale blue flowers very similar to
these, and a larger straight-leaved form with darker blue flowers.  

I'm with you, Mary, this mystery plant stuff is fun.
