This little lady has been flowering away all summer on the north facing gable of my house . Growing from the tarmac , no soil , no feeding , no watering ! Still flowering today as I removed some moss. Judy goes to show !!

Amazing where plants will seed into and thrive.

My little lady, and her babies, (Nicotiana) are still flowering away two years later. Self-sown into a crack in the front driveway. Must get a photo tomorrow. They even survived Ophelia and Brian no problem.

I had an incredible amount of lobelia that seeded around from last year's hanging baskets, it is everywhere!  Hope it does the same again this winter!!

It's great when things do their own thing and look so nice.

I do believe that sometimes we go over board with rules and the do's and dont's of gardening. Then you see this happen! Lovely!
