Plants migrating

I wondered if anyone else has noticed this in their garden? I have a nice clump of nepeta which I need to stake, gets very windy here and it knocks it over... But
It seems to have migrated to under a viburnum Tinus. Im sure it's just my bad planting and that the viburnum has grown but I'm sure it wasn't  that far over last year!

I know... I'm going crazy due to lock down, but I have noticed this with other plants.

    Nepeta does self-seed.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Raspberries just wander off to find a spot they prefer. Crocus move up or down in the soil to get to the right depth.

    Over the years, my ancient artichoke has migrated along the flowerbed.  I just let it get on with it.
    In London. Keen but lazy.
