A Returning Native
To some this native wildflower is considered nothing more than a garden thug, invasive, and highly successful at self-propagation.
We have it planted alongside the pond border, it's delicate blue flowers offering a cooling backdrop in the midst of summer heat.
It was originally a transplant from the garden of my son-in-law's grandmother, and is always welcomed back to ours each year.
At the first sighting of the flowers, I look towards the heavens, and shout "Granny, your Spiderwort's in bloom !"
