The other day I discovered a lovely new resident in my garden. I love the triple petals on the bottom of each flower!
I looked through my wildflower books, and it appears to be a wild lobelia. Now, I live right smack in the middle of town, far away from wooded areas and fields, and I'm not quite sure how this little beauty found its way to my yard, but I suspect that birds may have helped it find a new home by unwittingly transporting its seed. I wish I could get them to bring only flower seeds to my garden, because I also found sprouts of poison ivy that had appeared out of nowhere. I guess every silver lining has a cloud!
