hi..i live in queens ny & i have i guess you can call it shrub in my front garden..didnt know whether to pull it up or not.. it starts out with little purple fuzzy buds which open up to purple flowers but then as the stem grows the flowers turn to green leaves which have a sort of minty smell..can u tell me what kind of plant it is or if its a weed should i pull it

Since I can't examine the plant I can only offer an educated guess - I wonder if it might be hellebore (sometimes called lenten rose)? You can google hellebore and see if the flower matches the one in your yard. Hope this information helps!
