June 2021 mystery plant and kitties

This purple plant with cup-like downward pointing flowers showed up in a nice swath by the barn a few years ago. I do not know what it is –maybe someone can help with the identification? It does well in this spot, and it has shared a few stray seeds and spread a little to some other places.

Here is a handsome Tiglet sitting outside. The clouds in the next pictures did manage to drop a very little bit of rain for the garden last night. Much needed rain.

An entertaining bit of kitty discussion inside: Claribel and Milton are quite good friends, because he has a very good big warm tummy for a small cat to curl up against. But whenever he steps over a boundary she is quick to swat him back. I think this touchiness on her part is necessary since he is twice her size and can be a bit of a bully.

Milton being nice and washing Clari’s ears.
I didn’t see the precipitating event, but I am guessing he had a chew on one of her very tasty little ears. Caramel, in her sturdiness, looks ready to referee if necessary. Below is a much nicer picture of Cara, where she doesn’t look quite so stout.
And here is a picture of Claribel; she has successfully held her own and Milton has meandered away, unconcerned. Cousin has taken his place..

    • Aggressive is right –I just went and looked at some pictures and I think that is the one. And the site noted “extremely invasive.” I suppose I haven’t really tried to remove them entirely; I’ve just pulled out the ones I don’t want and left the others in a patch. Thank you for the ID.
