Notes:

I’m trying to identify the talk stalk with pale green spiky leaves and purple flowers. This is my third spring in this house and the first year it has produced flowers. It is one of the first plants to cone out of the ground, about the same time the crocus begins to grow. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Maybe a chocolate lily?
