What the heck is all this stuff?

Spring has finally hit Michigan and the yard of my new house has tons of plantings. Now, the obvious stuff I can identify.. hastas, tulips, daffodils (yep, that's about the exent of my gardening expertise)

So what is all this other stuff coming up? What do I do with it?

Here are some pics of my sprouting yard. How many plants can YOU identify?? :)

Now, this last plant is particularly important for me to identify. My mother in law thinks it's lilac. This would be bad. I am very very allergic to lilac and would have to find this a new home (although Ingrid seems interested). Does anyone know for sure what this is?

Here is a close-up of the blossom

Please help a knitter out!!

Speaking of knitting, I went to Jillian's book signing tonight for Big Girl Knits! Awesome! I will have pics & description tomorrow.

that is lilac dear, and a sweet magnolia tree that is still a baby which means give it extra love and water this hot summer.
