Please Help Me Identify This Plant & An Update On My Sister


I am needing help in  identifying this flower or weed I think it may be . I for the life of me have searched through all weeds of our province on site and cant find anything that looks like it and I haven't had any flowers that look like this either . We do live in the country and by fields and have birds carry stuff over the gardens and drop things or the wind blows seeds of all sorts here but I have never seen it before .

I like the look of it and to me it looks a bit like a breed of Milkweed but cant seem to pin point that either .

I tried to narrow the identifying  down  but I am at a stand still nothing I search seems to look like it at all. I am stuck lol please if anyone knows what this plant is could you let me know  I would greatly appreciate it .

  Update on my sister Ann : 

The neurologist's did relieve pressure and fluid from her brain and she did have a reaction of pulling her hand back when the nurse squeezed it and she was moving her head a bit to so that is a glimpse of hope there as the brain is what tells the arms ,  hands , neck and head to move the feet and legs are controlled by the spine , before there was no response from her brain at all  but now there is a bit so they said give it a few days and we shall see , so still hoping for a miracle  and hoping not to much damage has happened or been done . I haven't felt much like blogging these past few weeks  but I do read all your lovely comments when I do post  and I thank you for that .

                                                                                      Until next time .

That is encouraging news about Ann, hope improvement continues.
Is your plant one if the fleabane family? You might get a better ID when the blooms open.

I am glad your sister is showing signs of improvement. Sure hope she will be well soon. That weed, or plant, I should say, is a new one to me too. If you find out what it is, I hope you will tell us. I love the little fence Papa built you in your last post.

Hi there, I have had this weed in our yard but have no idea what it is! That is so hopeful about your sister!
I understand not blogging.

No idea what it is. Keeping your family in my thoughts.

So nice to hear there was a response from your sister. They also say that even when someone is in a coma, there is a very good chance they can still hear you so keep on talking too. I pray she will recover.

Sorry, I don't recognize the plant.

Continued prayers for Ann. That is encouraging news from the doctors. I'm pretty sure I've had this plant in my gardens, but it didn't flower into anything except tiny flowers at the very top. I figured it's a weed, and pulled it out when nothing really came of it.

Good news about your sister and praying for a miracle for her
I have no idea what the plant is but does look interesting

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

No idea about the ID on the plant, Elaine, but it sort of does look like a type of milkweed. Thanks for the encouraging news about your sister, Ann, and hope this is a sign of better results to come. And, it is quite understandable that blog posting takes a back seat to other issues with family. Take good care of each other.
