Heads or Tails Tuesdays: Flower


The first year we moved to Canada, I spent many hours in the yard cleaning up detritus and weeding. One of the plants I almost “weeded” out of existence was this beautiful Monkshood.


I had never seen one before and I didn’t recognize the shoots mixed in with many weeds I did recognize. Luckily, I thought I better give it a chance and this is the gift we received. (You can see that I let others live too that shouldn’t have been in this part of the garden!)


I’ve looked in many books to try and match pictures with this plant, but the closest I can ever come is Monkshood. If I have misnamed it, I would love for someone to correct me.


We love it and are looking to plant some in our new yard. We purchased the Baptisia thinking it looked similar — and it does! But it’s not the same plant. 🙂

Heads or Tails on Tuesdays is hosted each week by Skittles. Although this was (supposed to be) a week off, please join us again next week.

  1. Outstanding flower! Never seen it before. I don’t pull anything up anymore since I’m so stupid about plants. So nothing is a weed anymore!
