So when i was helping Blinda - my landlady with her community garden I found a plant that I just can't identify. It's slowly driving me nuts. It's either wild or an excaped variety of sunflower. I can't seem to get a good picture of it and I cannot identify it. I know there has to be a picture somewhere but who knows.
If anyone reads this and knows what it is please let me know.

Anemone berlandieri ) which I happen to love but many people consider it a weed. It comes in a blueish color as well as this white but I think they are so very special. Right now the area where it lives in my back yard is brown and crispy. Nothing alive there thanks to the over 100 degree weather and the drought. I snuck a dribble of water in the area since my sage and my rosemary were looking peaked. Hopefully we can get water and things will green up. I always marvel at how quickly weeds bounce back. As I look outside my window I see tiny wild petunias blooming with no additional moisture. I'm always amazed at how no matter how stressed or horrible we think something is...nature seems to be able to produce beauty from it. .
