We moved into a new home and have a flower garden in the front of our home that has not been taken care of for a while. I've been weeding but I can't seem to figure out what these plants are to know if I should pull them up or leave them. I have not seen weeds like them before. They look more like flowers to me but I also can't seem to find any pictures of what kind of flowers they may be. Any ideas?

I don't know what it is either, but my instinct is to say leave it there - it looks like it might be some type of perennial. Try walking over to the neighbors and asking them a few questions - they might know a lot more about your gardens than you can imagine. Also -- my brother is a horticulturist, and he always says "if you don't like it, then it's a weed. If you do like it, then it is NOT a weed".
