What with all this sun and rain, everything is growing very fast just now. That’s great for the runner beans, courgettes and tomatoes but not so good when it comes to weeds. I dashed out in the rain today to dead head some roses, harvest more peas and try and keep the lawn edges under some kind of control. I was down on my knees, cutting the lawn edges with shears, when I spotted this lovely viola, self-seeded among the weeds between the paving stones. It must have come from the exploding seeds in 2014. I think I’ll just leave the weeds to grow for a bit longer in case they have any more surprises like this in store for me.
