This plant is in my front garden bed. I know nothing about plants (I'm learning!!) and assumed it was a weed (maybe even poisonous) but a friend of mine came over and thought otherwise. It's hard to see in the picture, but it has a reddish stem and is about 8-12 inches high. Any ideas?? We are located in Philadelphia, PA. This just sprouted up at in the beginning of May. This is our first year in a new house, so that is all I know.

Your photo is really hard to make out (its a little blurry) and it gets smaller when its opened. Can you try again.

I'm guessing it's a Bleeding Heart of some kind, but, as stated above, another picture would help.
