If you’ve been reading my little mom blog for a while, you probably know that I garden. A lot.
I have an extensive flower garden, and Joe and I have five separate vegetable beds.
I know plants well.
Last week, when I was transplanting some shasta daisies that sprung up in the grass, I found these white flowers.
Here’s what I know:
- I live in zone 6b.
- I did not plant this little beauty, and I have lived in this house for 11 years. It either grew from a seed or a critter brought in a bulb from elsewhere.
- The flowers were closed and gone the very next day. I’m not sure if they were open the day before or not.
- The flowers were at the top of an 8-inch spike. The spike was thin, smaller around than a pencil.
- There were no leaves near the spike, though I could see where some grass-like leaves had whithered up.
- The whole thing was underneath my peonies, totally in the shade. I don’t imagine they get sun at all during the day.
So help a girl out. Do you know what these flowers are?
