Mimulus it is: I grow them in my planters, nice pictures of it.
Thanks for the responses. There is a consensus for Mimulus so I will go with that. We have never seen it before, certainly have not cultivated it.

Monkey Plant or mimulus it will seed itself and come every year! If you pick it up and cover it with soil you will have a flush of flower all summer and every year afterwards.
I would have thought someone with a horticultural screen name could have been a bit more specific.
afraid its more to do with alternative energy and i also shoot, the wife calls me an attack gardener lol
