The Accidental Gardener...

Each spring a large stubborn weed would appear at the base of the star magnolia and begin to climb through it and each year Vinnie would scramble underneath to pull it up. Then, the summer she was ill we were rather preoccupied with hospital visits to worry too much about weeding so the garden kind of got left to its own devices.

Lo and behold, the weed turned out to be a beautiful purple clematis and ever since we have left it to do its thing.

Always said gardening was a dark art....!
