Wild Things

Spotted a mile or two from our place

I got a short video but it's 22MB, too large to upload to Youtube. Drat.

Can you identify the wildflower that appeared in my herb garden last summer and this?

I've had my nose to the grindstone again this week, content to be indoors when it's so hot. Outside, the weeds are attacked with a stirrup hoe for only 10 minutes at a time — and in this heat, it's enough — whenever some physical activity is required to break up the hours spent in this chair. Maybe the flowerbed will be presentable again by the end of the week; it has gotten away on me yet again, as it does every summer.
