Here's another interesting plant that some of you might recognize. Anyone know what it's called?

panamint_patty: It seems that I recall someone calling that one Chinese lanterns or something to that effect. I know I've seen that plant a few times, but I'm not exactly certain of its name except that it sort of looks like some kind of papery lantern structure.

Found it! It's ground cherry and it's in the Nightshade Family. It took me awhile, but it's at dvplants.com which I guess is part of blackturtle.us. At least all the plant pics there are labeled with the blackturtle.us website name.

'Poisonous Plants 1-2-1' Digitalis, foxglove
This is a cool looking plant and although it is poisonous at the right dosage it has saved thousands of lives!
