    Hi,

    I have little interest in plants as anything I try to care for instantly dies, but I have some pretty weeds/flowers pop up in my garden and I'm just wondering what they are?

    I have tried looking online, but can't find anything the same, so I was just wondering if any clever person here knows what they are?

    They are small pink flowers on plants that are growing up to 7 ft (ish) tall. They are next to a stream and have turned up all on their own???

    Thanks

    I'm a gardener but not by choice. The wife tells me where to dig, plant, seed.....I guess it still counts as quality time!

    I'll show her the picture maybe she knows.

    thank you but the flower shape looks different??? The thing that stands out to me is the very clear white X shape sticking out the flower on the end of the stamen(?). I've not seen this on Google???

    Thanks again for your help.
