If you blink, Shamrocks happen.
Really, that was how these little gems came to be.
You see this was once my Mint Pot. You never should plant mint in your ground because it propagates incredibly well. Cuttings and seeds both will just grow and take over.
Your grass will be changed over to mint.
Mind you, you can always make tea out of the stuff, and I have. It's quite nice, this specific mint, and I will be restarting the pot in a while. But it had died back, and there was one lone shamrock growing there.
I let it go. Bad idea. Now I have a pot where almost all the remaining mint has been choked out by these little plants.
That is what you get when a casual gardener gets lazy. Lets call it "The Darwinian Gardening Method". What thrives is allowed to grow.
The flowers had caught my eye over the weekend. I really did like seeing them there, especially since they require no care other than occasional watering.
I have heard them called Sorrel and the roots have small tubers on them. The tubers can be cleaned, and have been used by the Native Americans to sweeten things. I'm not sure that I am quite that brave, but I do know that people in the caribbean will drink Sorrel Tea.
If this is the same stuff and it could be since The Bahamas are only about 100 miles east of where I sit.
I guess you could call this "Stuff I Just Like" like a friend does, and call it a day.
Enjoy some little flowers in March wherever you are.
