Mystery Plant

I must have planted these, though I don’t remember when or why. They are coming up in a bed on the north side of my house, and were a pleasant surprise yesterday as I pulled out the last of the brown foliage from last year’s daylilies. I wasn’t sure what they were at first, but a little looking confirmed: Glory of the Snow (Chionodoxa). Glory of the Snow are distinct among the early spring bulbs in that they turn their flower faces upward, unlike the more bell-like shape of the squill bulbs, which are blooming just around the corner from these.
