This is at my mom's. The last three years they've had a hummingbird garden in there, originally grown from seed and mostly UPO's. I want to rescue some stuff before dad kills it all and puts in a new bed, but it's hard to tell what's a weed and what's not.

Another leafy guy. Sorry I don't have more info on these!

very welcome Kimberly ;). the Malvaceae family sure is huge! sometimes difficult to distinguish one from the other if basing on leaves alone. the flowers solves their mystery.

afar from the ones i started from seeds, the friendly humer that come to visit, keep bringing other variety of wild ones to my garden. there are 3 of those volunteers that are about 3' tall. am just waiting for them to bloom to see what they really are.
