I moved in to my house last June and left this plant alone all summer and fall and never saw any blooms - the leaves just got to be very large by the end of the summer. It is back again in the same place, so I don't think it is a weed, but I still don't see anything happening with it, so your help would be very much appreciated! It has big pointy leaves and the stems are fuzzy. Thank you!

Possibly houndstongue, Cynoglossum officinale:
