Found this pretty colored plant/weed the other day. Haven't had any luck looking through pages of "purple or burgundy weeds, plants or wildflowers" in Tennessee. Birds must have dropped the seed off here. Any clues?

My chenopodium giganteum often turns beautiful colours at this time of year.

I even have some in the garden now...

Found a pic from 2011

I wish it had that redeeming quality in my part of the country! Here, it's just another weed.

Thank you all for the ID. Ha ha jokes on me. I knew the stem/stalk looked familiar just could not put a name to it. Also I have never seen it that color which I happen to like.

Never!!!

At my house, it's a deliberately planted vegetable....

Also, it's a bird feeder.....
Here's a cardinal dining at my feeding station:
