I don't have a clue

as to what this plant is. I don't remember planting anything in this spot, but I've been watering quite a bit to try to keep my cherry tree alive.

Whatever this is, it should be blooming tomorrow. It appears to have five buds or petals. The foliage is a small licorice mint that volunteered.

I know - one of the pictures is pretty blurry...I moved the camera just before it took.





Stay tuned for the solution to the mystery :)

It's a surprise lily. In the spring you will get a bunch of leaves and then they die. Late in summer, out pops a flower with no leaves. I love them!

Amy sounds like she knows what she is talking about. It does have the look of a lily. I'd take anything that decided to bloom and grow on its own. :) enjoy! Best wishes, Tammy
