does anyone know what these are?

i spotted them in a front garden of a house just down the road from us

aren’t they magnificent!

the owner popped out and encouraged me to take some seeds

so i did

he didn’t know what they are either, thought they might be weeds

beautiful weeds i say

wild flowers

    They’re bears breeches, Latin name Acanthus mollis, definitely not weeds, but they can be quite vigorous if they’re happy! I’ve got some in my back garden that have crept in from the neighbour. I love them.
