Gorgeous Self Seeders!

These beauties have arrived in amongst the tangle of weeds that I call the front garden. So beautiful and I will definitely be saving the seed! Have you had any nice surprises? 😀

    I get opium poppies too  :D I sowed some maybe 10 years ago and they disappeared after the first year. But the last two years they've come up again around the place and next door.

    I also get foxgloves in all the shades of pink to white having planted white ones a while back and the native ones being common here. They make a lovely 'stand' where you get a group all together in subtly different colours.

    I have those blowsy pink poppies too, and there were none when I moved here five years ago.  I love them because they are so OTT.  Other uninvited, but welcome, guests in my garden are foxgloves, a rowan tree and two baby hollies, which I've potted up and will put in a border when they are bigger.

    I also have foxgloves, which I love and will be spreading the seed further. I got some bonus water forget me not and viola too this year, by the pond, so I hope they spread! 😀
  • Ha, I've got these come up in my garden but they all only have the single flower, still pretty but I was hoping for the 'blowsy' ones.

    Bright blue cornflowers have appeared in a border this year.  I've tried to grow them before without any success, but definitely not in that spot.

    Oooh lovely! I do love  how self seeders find their own spot despite us! 😀
