What’s This?

You know how you find something growing in the garden,and you wonder what it is?

 

Did I plant something and forget?

 

Is it a weed?

 

I don’t remember planting something there,so should I pull it up?

…I didn’t…

 

Soooo….

 

what’s this?

So…….

 

should I be embarrassed I let a weed grow?

 

Could it be pickerel weed?

 

 

Is it special?

 

What is it ?

 

No prizes given,if you identify it.

‘cuz I don’t know what it is….

Oh my gosh, I wish I had a weed that looks like that one. What beautiful blooms. I've never seen it before.

Well if it is a weed, it is a lovely one, I would have kept it too. I have a couple of plants I do not remember planting, but forgot to take pictures to post for identification. Oh well, there is always next year to do that.

Funny...I let some flowers grow this summer, too. I thought they were tiny snapdragons. Apparently, it's some weed growing in the ditches, but they did look just like little snaps and were a pretty yellow. I think your weed is very pretty.
