I tried looking up some of the weeds and self-sowers that I find in the yard and didn't know. I think we have:
* Epilobium ciliatium. Arthur Lee Jacobson common-names it "dwarf fireweed" but Google says that's 10x as likely to be the latifolium (which I'd much prefer in the yard, actually much bigger showier flowers, and it's the national flower of Greenland).
* or is that Epilobium paniculatum|brachycarpum? I'll have to take another look. May actually be both, but the smaller one's more common.
* Linaria purpurea. Pretty enough that it was probably planted on purpose, and I'm happy to have it, I'm just saying it knows how to take care of itself. The peach-leaf bellflower also falls in that category.
