Might be pokeweed. Though at this time of year they usually have berries

I kind of hope, if and when I get a house, to have a good spot in my yard for a bit of pokeweed. I think it'd be a great way to attract some songbirds without resorting to bird feeders or bird baths.

Yeah, looks like pokeweed. I think the berries started off white.

They've just appeared here and there.

It's probably bias from knowing already, but pokeweed looks like it's poisonous and it wants everyone to know it.
