      The blossoms look exactly like that and I just went out and looked at the leaves which also look like them. The only thing that doesn’t synch with it is that what is left after the bloom looks like a mini peppercorn. If it is, the other thing I thought was St. John’s Wort isn’t lol Thank you for helping me out with ID, Jen. We’ll see what happens with those peppercorns and if they turn into the “fruit” they show at wiki.

      Thank you on the garden. I’m putting more effort into the care (i.e. watering and weeding) and it seems to make an improvement.

      Thank you so much, Vic!!! I just uploaded the pic in there and got 5 possibilities. I think the last one is it because of those peppercorn looking things. I have bookmarked it and will definitely be using. Thanks again ๐Ÿ™‚

      It’s magic to see all of that sprout from one tiny seed in a short time. I do also, and I saw 2 baby zucchini this morning ๐Ÿ™‚
