Two pink flowers showed up unexpectedly at Coppertop this past week through zero effort on our part. These are gifts of beauty.
As I walked by the pond heading to the veggie garden (those peas won’t pick themselves, you know!), I noticed we have our first blooming water lily. Although it looks plastic, I promise it’s not.
As seen in the photo, other poppies have self-seeded nearby, and I have to wonder how many volunteers I pulled, thinking they were weeds. These must have been cultivated inside the greenhouse at one point, since seedlings are sprouting on the gravel ground; we’ve pulled up many with their cabbage-like foliage, not knowing their potential. Now we know better!
