Hi all, I found this growing at the side of my house around the start of April last year.

I was thinking it might be a rose but wouldnt that be too early?

Anyone have an idea of what it is?

I took the photo on April 1st 2012

    Hi Matt

    I wonder how it managed to pop up outside my house :P

    It is literally growing from underneath it. I'll go see if it pops up again once the weather has warmed up

    If it's coming out from under your house, I would have it out, they grow quite thick stalks, it could damage your brick work. Probably a seed dropped by a bird.
