    Hi,

    Can anyone please help identify who this strange intruder is in our garden.

    We presume it has come from the bird seed off our bird table as it is growing directly underneath it.

    Could not take a picture of the whole plant at once as it would be difficult to see against the green bird table and other green foliage

    Many thanks for any help, thanks for looking

    Looks a bit like what I think was called "star of Bethlehem" which as Mrs Cloudy says was beautiful. However don't pick a nice bunch of them for mummy as she may not appreciate the smell, however much she appreciated the loving thoughts of her small daughter! :D
