How did that get there?

The little stonecrop that was growing on the edge of a border has bloomed.  Bright yellow flowers in a bed that I am trying to keep to pinks and apricot colours.  No recollection of planting it there.  Then I looked up - our outhouse roof has lots of it!

It's obviously happy here!  

Pleased to see it on the roof - but should I leave the one in the border or move it?

    I tried to grow a border with no pink flowers. Gave up. If you like it, keep it there. If it offends you, they move very easily

    Thanks @raisingirl - I think I'll keep it there - it is so cheery and as I'm going for a cottage garden look, the odd incongruous self-set plant is par for the course.
