Earlier this week I noticed a single green stalk in the bare patch of yard next the driveway. I figured it was a little weedling tree but on closer inspection, it had a thick lily-like stalk, so I let it be. And sure enough, today it bloomed.
It only cost me four mosquito bites to get pictures of it this morning. I reaaaaally hate mosquitoes! In other surprise yard news, the MO noticed that the banana tree we've never quite got around to chopping down is sprouting bananas. They're pretty small yet, but they're there!
Pretty cool, huh? Happy botanical day :-)
