“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.”

~ Gerard De Nerval, writer and poet (1808-1855)

Can you help me identify this plant? It voluntarily sprang up in a garden in southwestern Washington State, dies down in the winter, then comes back every year in the spring. Maybe an herb? Maybe a weed? Maybe  an alien life form? Please post answers in the comments for this post. Thank you!
