Asparagus! Really.

Just not the stage of the plant that most of us normally see.

Heck, I've known the little patch (too small for me to risk harvesting, and I love asparagus) was out there, and that the spears everyone sees in the produce bins turn into a lovely tall, frilly plant.

But I just this week I finally noticed the beautiful little bell flowers it also sends out.

Charming plant.
