A lovely volunteer

Usually the plants that volunteer to grow in your yard without your explicit request are the ones that you have to call weeds and pull from the ground by their roots. They are, sadly, generally quite ugly.

In this case a butterfly bush decided to plant itself in our circular drive garden. (Technically, it’s an elliptical drive. THAT is a very long story.) Because I knew what it was, I let it grow. At some point we may choose a different home for it, but for now I’m happy to have it where it is. It just started blooming and I’m looking forward to the butterflies finding it soon.

I think the second version will make a nice cover photo for twitter or facebook…
