At first glance the flowers looked suspiciously like Stinky Bobs, aka Herb Roberts, but they're not. These just appeared in our front yard, I've never seen them before.

The flowers may be similar, but these aren't blue.

Sure looks like it. I'm surprised anything other than weeds takes root in that yard. Wonder if I can move them to a better place. There's more than one plant.

Which ever they are, I like them and gave them something to drink.
