Some weeds which sprouted in our yard. Not sure what they are

Oh, you guys are lucky! Those are lilies of the valley and they have a most wonderful scent! I'm surprised they just appeared out of nowhere, though.
I love a lily of the valley colony… pick some and stick them in little glasses all over the house. They smell gorgeous.
certainly among the more attractive of the weeds!
I'd be more inclined to call them "volunteers" rather than "weeds" — but, as arbed said, Lilies of the Valley for sure.
I see Lillies of the valley and Mountain Laurel it seems. Mountain Laurel is just Bay leaves.
The "weeds" notation comes from when the plants first sprouted (before they bloomed) and I noticed them. I asked mariser if she knew what they were.
Not sure how they got here. But never seen the flowers till this year. Maybe they were dormant?
Actually we have Rhododendrons of some sort.
Mountain Laurel and Rhododendrons are both Ericaceae family. Waxy evergreen leaves. Usually in 5's but not always. Cluster heads of flowers. Some poisonous, some medicinal. Pest resistant.
Purdy! I love those!!
