What are they?

Anybody know what these pink flowers are called? They just appeared in with my wildflowers this year. I've never seen them before, and I didn't plant any new seeds this year... or last year, either, if I remember right.

(Click to enlarge.)

Are they weeds? Maybe I need to hurry up and get 'em out of there before they go to seed?

I do not know what they are either, but they are pretty. They look like Zinnias " Gone Crazy, like one blossom stacked on top of the other. I have an extra 2 and 3 year old today so NO time to check the flower book library today. Having a great time. Boys napping now so I vacuumed and mopped the floors. WHEW, I wonder how their mama does it? She is truly super-mom .

Nothing that pretty can be a weed, can it? I thought maybe it was a type of dephinium, but I'm not sure. It's probably some type of biannual, which doesn't produce a bloom the first year, rather, works on it's root system.

I think it's very alien looking, possibly some thing from elsewhere.
Elsewhere... if you know what I mean.
Don't tell the kids but, it's most likely the result of an ET visit
I'm speaking in code here so as to not frighten the children.
