Another batch of mysteries

Another batch of mysteries

You all were so awesome with the first batch of puzzle plants that I went out and photographed some more!

First up: is this an oriental poppy? My neighbor says she remembers them from last year, and I know they are fuzzy...

Next: I have a couple of mounds of this stuff -- friend or weed?

#3: Another one that I can't tell if it's a weed or not...we have a few bunches.

#4: This one is a border plant next to our walkway, under our gigantic forsythia.

#5: Here's another bulb/tuber/rhizome that I don't recognize. Hey, maybe these are the irises I hope for, but I doubt it.

#6: These look like my cosmos seedlings do, but I suppose they could be anything at such a young age.


Bonus Time!

We have an enormous, overgrown azalea:

Which is mostly crispy and brown:

But does have some green bits (on the back, in the shade and away from the road):

Any ideas what's wrong with it? Is it worth rescuing? How can it be resuscitated? Should it just be dug up and replaced? I like azaleas, but this one looks to me like it's seen better days.

It’s cold, so cold. Well, for North Carolina anyway.
