Yesterday I found this plant in my front yard. Matt thought maybe it was a tree, but it had a rubbery stem and foliage. Probably another weed, I thought. But we took a nice long walk and I saw the same plant in someone's yard (who happened to be outside) and she told me they were peonies.
This is our 3rd summer in this house and I've never seen these before. So apparently they've either been dormant, a seed blew in from somewhere, or some stranger planted them for us. In any case, welcome Peony plant. I don't know what kind it is yet, but I found this website for ID'ing Peonies.
But I did find another plant in the backyard that I'm sure is a weed. Am I right?
I was joking with Matt that it looked like a marujuana leaf (how many hemp T's did I see in grad school in Madison?!)
