@debrascott that's what I was thinking too.... The leaves are very similar to orchids.

Thank you @lesliecole49 @leno 💕 I saw them in my neighbor's yard and I was going to ask her what they were, but now I have my own. 😉

Maybe off the lily family but I can't find anything the same, maybe @moore.794 @cyndi @melvynprentice would know.

@moore.794 the leaves are what caught my attention. Gorgeous! I found some more strays in the irrigation walkway that I want to transplant. @cyndi thank you 😉💕
