One of the great advantages of knowing a bit about the different garden plants is that I can take one look at a seedling and decide if it is weeds or self-seeding flower plants from last year.
Then I can carefully dig up some of the self-seeding plants and gather them on spots they can grow big on. The rest goes in the compost bin together with common weeds.
I base a lot of the spring blooming in the garden on self-seeding annuals. Like this white Cleome.
The Castor bean is an avid self-seeder. They have just started to flower. (The red ones).
Castor bean is another really eager self-seeder. I have written about them before here. Its almost shamefully easy and convenient and have som avid self-seeders in the garden here in Texas.
The Nicotiana is another self-seeder. Here with some Canna in bloom.
An opossum baby is wobbling around in the garden at the moment. When Ulla (the poodle) and I found it yesterday he was busy running around in circles. He manages to behave so silly that Ulla and Milo appear as Nobel Prize candidates.
Zinnia is another stable self-seeder.
The herbs look awesome on this time of the year. In front Basil, Parsley, Thyme and at the back Tarragon. Lemon balm at the left side. And Milo the Rottweiler.
