Speaking of things you see, I came home from work last week and found this blooming. Anyone have any idea what it is?

Lol..... I don't know, but I don't think so. Pigeons are one thing we don't get out here in the sticks. That particular bed is right up against our mobile home. Funny story as to how it came to be.

When my wife first moved in, before she was my wife, she wanted to buy a couple of very small plastic flower boxes at Walmart. I asked her why she wanted to spend $6 apiece on such small junky-looking things. She didn't understand and acted like I had hurt her feelings. With my usual tactics, by asking the same questions repeatedly until I got the answers I was looking for, I finally explained that we could build something bigger and better, for a cost of next to nothing. I gathered pieces of flat sandstone that were just laying around, outlined the "box", cut open a large lawn and leaf trash bag and lined the box, used a two-tine serving fork to poke drainage holes in it, and it took 5 times the potting soil to fill it that those two plastic flowerboxes would have held.

It has outlasted the purchased flowers we planted in it that first year. Since its construction, I have gathered samples of wildflowers from around here and planted them in and around it. The wild phlox we planted have spread all over. This year we have them over ten feet away from their starting point. They've even made it across the driveway. A ground covering thing, probably related to seedum, that we brought home from the woods down by the river, the diameter of a coffee cup back then has spread across the rocks, survived all the moving I had to do when I reskirted the house, and covers an area larger than a dinner plate. Other wildflowers that were so small in the woods have flourished in the old potting soil to the point that I've pulled some of them up before they choked out everything else.

But I have no idea where the Columbine came from.

Might not have been pigeons, Draco, but my bet would be on a bird of some variety.

Amazing, isn't it? She said I'm a combination of all her favorite men in her life. It helped that I recited Kipling for her on our first date.

I'll see what I can do about the pic. The rock box and the flowers in general have been neglected the last couple years. Last spring she had a torn rotator cuff in her right shoulder, and this spring she's been trying to catch up on things that were neglected from that whole episode.

Oh, and we're getting ready to add on to the house.

If you can get some wild columbines, the ozark variety is gorgeous - bright-dark red with yellow centers. They're about half the size of the domestic ones, which is what it looks like you have.

It WAS equiped with Betty Boop floormats, Bad Girl seat covers, 2 pink fluffy dice, 2 pink fluffy animals, ink fur round the driving mirror, and the tax disc holder was a pink cardboard handbag!

This owner would appreciate that, he's probably very proud of his car
Seriously, it was in a public road, so I don't see the need?
