A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

What Is This?

This little "flower" made it's first appearance in my front garden last summer. There was one little plant...right where I had planted a pink poppy. This year there are several, and now I noticed these big seed pods ready to pop open. Is it a "Prickly Poppy?" The flower is sweet, but the foliage is not very pretty. It certainly isn't what I planted.Tell me if you know what this mystery plant is. Is it a weed? Balisha

I like it. But then I like unusual surprises. Have a great day.

I have the same plant in my flower bed. I don't know what it is either. I also had planted some poppy seeds earlier. The plant didn't grow exactly where I planted the seeds.
