|Thumbelina (dwarf) zinnia seedlings|
A week ago I happened to spot something that suddenly appeared at the edge of my garden that I did not plant. At first I thought it was ice plant that perhaps blew over from my neighbor's yard. I let it be to see what would come. And lo and behold, a red portulaca flower appeared. I did plant one portulaca last spring, but ripped the plant out in the fall after it had stopped blooming to replace it with a pansy. Apparently it reseeded itself even though it is considered an annual. I better check under that pansy to see if there are some seedlings growing under it. The pansies are dying off now in the heat anyway.
