Odd plant that showed up in an odd place...there are two of them.

Might be something that came in with bulk feedstore buckwheat? Or a birds deposit?
I'm watching for flowers.
It's fuzzy, slightly thick leaves and a round stem.

Thanks Greg and thanks for the suggestion Jeesun!
Something in that family might be it...it does have some familiarity to a borage.

Still waiting on flowers....pretty sure they are buds not seed pods?

borage was going to be my suggestion as it looks similar to mine before the flowers open though I am not sure about the leaves. Too big or too small?

Flowers!
Odd assymetrical, tubular...some in pairs, others three or four opening together.
Five petals...seemed slightly lavender when faded.
No scent to leaves or flowers and still the only plants I've found.
