This is a “volunteer” in the garden, next to the asparagus patch. In high school or in the early years of the seminary I wasn’t one to have much interest in Greek mythology, so, I have no analogies to make here except that it’s not Perseus who ends the threat of Medusa’s viper-hair:
Rather, it’s the Immaculate Conception who intercedes for the salvation of the soul of Adam’s wife.
Rather than be so grotesque, dearest Mary does a little dance:
This flower up top is wild garlic which is illegal to harvest on public property. But this is in my garden. In this case, I don’t want to harvest it as I’m hoping it will spread next year. Do I just let it alone, or do I pull it up, separate the cloves and plant those individually?

Hi Father, I found your question so intriguing that investigated a little. I found the best info at: https://notahorticukturist.com/2021/02/26/wild-garlic/
They tell you what to be aware of, such as dangerous look-alikes, places to buy safe seeds and bulbs and growing tips
I hope this helps and that you have a good crop but your yard isn’t overrun.
God bless – and say the Rosary everybody!
I repeat what Joisy Goil says; “say the Rosary!”
