Lunaria (aka Honesty)

I saw these purple blooms from a distance while getting my son on the bus this morning, and had to take a minute to figure out what was growing here that I hadn’t planted.

Answer: lunaria that reseeded from last year (or the year before). In a while, they’ll form seed pods that look like silver coins — hence their other common name of Money Plant.
