A packet of seeds ...

... Sprinkled by my son over a thin strip of earth in the spring - and they're lovely.

Mid-summer hydrangea


Some sort of late-summer, robust but fluffy ceanothus.

The most vivid splash of colour - even on a dull day

Nature, having a laugh

I buy a pot, buy a bonny lavender plant and plant it. I water it and watch as it sulks - grey and lack-lustre. Then lo' - some lavender self-seeds in an invisible crevice in a stone wall. And look at it!


I don't know if that's how you spell it - but something like that, anyway.
