Is this a weed or a flower?

    If possible, do you have another photo taken further back to see the shape and growth. Do the blue flowers belong to the plant? It looks a bit like Salvia Pretensis, Meadow Clary.

    Growing just next to a salvia, here is another photo, purplish green stem...

    Nipplewort (Lapsana communis), a weed.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I think it looks more like some type of Physalis.

    I still agree with Bob :)

    Here's one from just now - not as well grown as this is under a couple of fruit trees instead of a flower border: :)
