Undiscovered Virtues

The only flowers in my yard blooming that are not purple

Miniature lilacs, they smell very sweet.

Grape soda iris siberian iris

Allium and peony bud

Can you identify this flower for me?

Bachelor buttons Chive blossoms

What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
All people are like weeds, we are here on earth to seek out the undiscovered virtues in ourselves and those around us.

OK - I have the same flower in one of my beds and I had to ask Ms. DNR what it was too.... she thought it was Jacob's Ladder. But since Floride is quoting latin names, I would beleive her.
