I don’t usually make a habit of publicizing my laziness or gardening errors.

But sometimes something so serendipitous happens that I just have to share it. Here is a spontaneous garden container.


I neglected to clean out and put away this pot that was the home for a beautiful hibiscus last year. I had nothing else planted in the pot. At all. And this spring, some pansies have self-seeded. Then, hot dog and holy moly! A small sunflower seems to have sprouted from among the dead hibiscus stems. I was so intrigued by the whole thing, I have just let it go to see what happened.

And now, I rather like it.

What about that? I have an automatic garden! What if everything were this easy?
