Whatever it is, your Dad may have liked it. Or was he ill for too long a time before he passed and did not have time to care for his veggie beds? I see some really nice tomato plants behind this one.

It is definitely not a hosta. However, I've heard it said that a weed is a flower/plant in the wrong place.

So sorry about the loss of your father.

Moccasinlandy That was very beautifully put, and I agree with you 100%.

I, too, am so for the loss of your father henry68.
