I took a year off from my vegetable garden and just let it go wild to see what happens. Not much. Hilarious!

Except this one wild flower:

Nice interesting flowers:

Even the stalk/stems are quite something:

I like it. It's probably an annual so not sure how well it would work but thinking of opening a space in the border of my property to see if I can get a patch of this going.
Anyone know what it is? Thank You!

It is one of the White Mistflowers, but I don't know which one, I have never seen one so hairy.
I think it is beautiful, and I am sure someone will know exactly what it is. Smiling

I am going through Discoverlife.org to ID my own plant and came across Common Boneset. I am still learning plants, so could be way off.
Here is the link to the plant here.

I tell you, I would like leaving a spot alone and having a native come up, but for the most part I have to work for mine. Smiling

Kim, if you give them enough time they will eventually show up, that is the way I got a lot of mine. Smiling
