Potatoes and carrots with sage, rosemary and garlic, and do you know this flower?

Digging up the garden I pulled some ugly carrots and a few potatoes (white and yellow). I cleaned them and boiled them until cooked but firm, then I remove the skins (from the carrots too!) and sautéd them with olive oil, garlic, sage, rosemary and a pinch of salt. Really simple but super tasty!!

I also found this flowers… really pretty but I have no idea what they are! I didn't plant them and I thought that they were a weed, do you know them?

  4. Yes, you have Shoo fly / Nicandra. It was planted widely a few years ago because it was said to ward-off white cabbage butterflies. But it's poisonous and very weedy.
