Surpresas/Surprises

Ainda ando a mondar o jardim. Com estas chuvas e o tempo quente as malditas ervas tomaram o jardim de assalto. No meio de tanta erva uma ou duas coisas boas. Primeiro descobri que as minhas lavandas (Lavandula dentata ) andaram espalhar sementes pelo jardim e que as sementes germinaram (mais lavandas a florir daqui a uns tempos).

I'm still weeding. With all the rain in the last few days and the warm temperatures weeds have grown a lot. In the middle of all the weeds I found two things that made my day. A few lavender seedlings growing in the garden, meaning that my French lavender is self sowing.



A segunda foi esta expontanea de origem desconhecida (parece ser uma Centaurea). Apareceu num dos canteiros. Gostei da planta e vou deixá-la ficar.

And this volunteer. I don't really know what it is (looks like some sort of Centaurea) but I liked the plant. I decided to let it grow and see how it will look in the garden.

I find it beautiful. Let's see how it behaves in the garden.

How nice to read that you got some much needed rain! The wonderful thing is that after it has rained many surprises spring up from the ground. Some are not so nice (weeds) and some are very nice like this lovely plant and the grape hyacinth you found earlier.
