Identify this plant.

Can anyone identify this plant, which has suddenly appeared in my garden this summer?

    Nicandra physaloides [Shoo fly plant ]
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    I had some pop up in the veg patch last year ... goodness knows where from ... birdseed possibly?

    They do pop up everywhere, I haven’t seen the seed in the bird food, but it could have, or a present from a bird from eating it off the plant.
    I've put some seeds on the  Seed Swap thread.
