My husband was out back burning some old brush piles this past week when in the middle of everything he came upon this plant. He had no idea what it was but thought for sure it was poisonous so he refused to touch it.
As plain Jane as it looks it's a good thing he left it alone!

And a darned good sized one at that!
We have no idea where it came from or how long it's been there but we suspect a bird probably dropped the seed, and my husband believe's the plant was there last year too. Pretty cool!
My husband is now going to make it into it's own little garden, most likely with mulch and all.
