In the weeds at the edge of my yard and farm field.....

.....I found THESE! For the life of me, I cannot remember the name of the plant.

I had it in the flowerbed a few years ago and assume that during the process of deadheading, some of the seed took hold and produced this lovely specimen.
If you could see the tangle it had to grow through to make it, you would not believe it.......

It seems to be a little inspirational thing for me; one tiny seed struggling and not giving up, and then putting on a show of unbelievable color!
Trust me, these photos are not retouched as far as contrast or color. Straight from the camera to the computer. The plant truly glows.
If anyone would like to refresh my pea-brain memory on what precisely this is, I would not at all be insulted. Be it age, anesthesia, or just mental non agility, I can't remember like I used to. And I started these from seed to boot!
Help! Someone name it!
P.S. I received an e-mail from my dear friend Lynn McDonald, also an artist, with the name for the plant:
Rose Campion
THANK YOU LYNN!!!!!!!

I had exactly the same experience this year ... still don't know the name of the plant that has come up LOL. I don't even remember planting or having it in the garden last year - but it is a sweet little thing!
