Just wondering, do you like randomness in the garden? you know, things popping up in unexpected places. Or do you like everything all neat and tidy?
Myself, I love randomness!
Like this Morning Glory vine that seeded and curled right up onto my front porch.
It also climbed it’s way up this sunflower. Another bit of randomness.
I love this one that climbed up two of my old rakes.
Last year I had lots of giant sunflowers pop up in various places in my front yard. This year they returned, The heads are a lot smaller, but they are ever so tall.
I just pulled out all of my pansies from this bed. Last year I planted Petunias in amongst the pansies so that I would have color all summer. When the pansies were still pretty up until Fall I decided to forego the planting of the Petunias. Wouldn’t you know it that it was extra hot this year and now I have no color. The single white Alyssum is another bit of randomness that reseeded from last year. Didn’t have the heart to pull it out.
Another cute little random sunflower.
This is the second year that portulaca has came back in my beds by the front porch. It’s scattered randomly here and there. It surprises me because I pull them all out every fall.
Another surprising thing is the fact that I have three butterfly bushes that just grew in my yard, They are just starting to bloom. I never planted one of them. They randomly reseeded from my neighbors.
There you have it, a bit of randomness at my home.
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
