These just started showing up here the last couple years. I am not sure what they are. Hoping it is not Purple Loosetrife!

I can choose not to contribute to a problem by getting rid of it. If everyone ripped out the first invasive weed they see before allowing it to go to seed and be spread it would help reduce the numbers greatly. Now man on the other hand, there is nothing I can do about that. lol
