Annuals Gone Wild


Here is haphazard gardening at its best. We planted this annual—can’t remember its name—last year in a garden plot next to our patio. When the weather cooled, we pulled them up, never expecting to see these flowers again. But apparently, a seed escaped and found a new home in the rock bed on the other side of the patio.
This technically now is a weed, but it’s too pretty to pull up.

Love when that happens! In our veggie garden, every year is a surprise because I don't harvest everything. I had 7 tomato plants show up on their own:)

Dandelion. And though a weed, they do make good wine.

Looks like a flower to me! And didn't it pick a perfectly aligned spot to be?

Wow..I guess that is called destiny, is it's to happen it would happen no matter whatever happens.

And don't pull it up, another seed might not be able to escape :-)

A weed is simply a flower growing in the 'wrong' place ;-)

How lovely! I think that's Calendula, or pot marigold. If it is, it's good for medicinal uses, or for coloring butter yellow!
