Back on July 3, when we first arrived back from the south where I saw my first one up close, I took this photo of mine. (The southern one's story is here: Mullein down South)

Today, 16 days later, it continues to reach for the sun. It is not nearly as pretty as the southern one.
THEN! I saw wild sweet peas too! They were never there. I know because it is the view through my bathroom window. How nice it is to have volunteer flowers to enjoy.
