A hot day in May

It got to 89 degrees on Thursday here – I wandered around the yard taking pictures.  Here’s a nice photo tour of our yard – Spring is in full swing.  It was 89, and next week they are saying we are supposed to get some snow showers – I think (hope!) it will just be mixed with rain and not actually stick to the ground.  We’ll see; it’s the U.P. after all.  Sigh…

Our yard is greening up nicely.

This is the mystery plant from my Leeks post last week - they are now getting yellow flowers.  I still don't know what these are - if you know, please leave me a comment.

My garlic is doing well - I planted this last fall.  This is my first time growing garlic.

This is supposed to be an asparagus patch.  My mom kept it as one for a long time, but it stopped producing. It's surrounded by narcissus, which are not blooming yet, and need to be divided.  So far my asparagus that I started last year has not appeared again, although we have a rhubarb (on the right) and a large mullein growing here (on the left).

    Good Morning! I think your “Mystery Flower” is a Yellow Trout Lily. Sometimes people call it a Dogtooth Violet because of the tooth shape of its underground bulb. The “Trout” comes from the mottled leaves which look like the coloring of Brown Trout. Regarding the aspargas, my Mom said the don’t like to be planted near other plants, so maybe they died out when the flowers were planted around them. Something to check out…
