Well what do you know....this "weed" has turned up uninvited in our garden. We pondered whether we should leave it alone [ after much excitement last year that leave-it-alone turned out to be a slightly less than thrilling buttercup!] or remove it as whatever it is really has chosen the most awkward spot to grow in. As you see from the photo below it's competing with a very vigorous raspberry. However, we decided to give it a stay of execution and over the ensuing months it has grown a bit like Jack's beanstalk....all upward and green leaves. That was until we got back from holiday when we noticed some tiny little flower buds had appeared.....we've sat patiently these past couple of weeks for it to bloom and I have to say it was certainly worth the wait....

As for what it is....well I can't really help you there I'm afraid as we're still very much in the dark. Its leaves are the pointy ones. Our latest theory is that it's some kind of Soapwort. However, all suggestions would be very much welcomed. Whatever it turns out to be in the end it's most definitely earnt its rightful place and is a keeper!
It's hot so it's just a quick offering from me today🌞 Have a great weekend. Arilx
I spotted this on my recent trip to Standen. I know what it is because I've had a miniature version in my dollshouse for several years,...
I can't remember a time that I have ever worn yellow on its own. When seen like this on display though it is rather cheery....mind you ...
