Thanks, Hazel. The only thing difficult about this plant is keeping the foliage in good shape all summer until it blooms. It is still loaded with flowers and is producing about 4 or 5 blooms per leaf axil and I have 5 plants, so it has been a very welcome member of my late garden this year. I fear a freeze may get it before it ripens the seeds, but if they mature, do you want some later on?

What is that little plant grown underneath the toad lily? Do you think it is the same as this one? Your toad lily is wonderful, I planted some for the first time this fall, hope it looks like yours next year.

No it is not the same as your photo. I have a leaf of a celandine poppy seedling and some columbine leaves in the lower right hand corner and some lysimachia nummularia at the top.
Your plant looks a bit like astrantia, but there are a lot of plants with leaves similar to your picture. If you are wanting to identify your plant, try starting a thread in the Identification Forum and putting the picture there. There are a lot of experts that take a real delight in helping figure out what it might be.
