Thank you

This is possibly poppy...??
Im not completely sold on the Yarrow

In addition to the leaves, I see what looks like Achillea filipendula flower buds (whitish) in the first photo. Posting a close-up of them would help to confirm.

It looks like fern-leaf tansy or white-flowered tansy to me.

that whitish stuff is "bug spit" :) She said it was all over.

Oriental Poppy seems to be a popular guess with family & friends.

It is @ my friends house. Before she knew what it was, she pulled it out. I told her to replant it but I dont know that she did/will.
I've learned to leave them until they flower - if its a weed, just make sure you pull it before it goes to seed :) Never know what you'll get.

It's not an oriental poppy. Here's a good photo of Papaver orientalis foliage - note the differences:

I would lean toward Tanacetum, too.

So did it bloom? What's the conclusion?

It was my friends - she ripped it out :/ I dont have an answer.
