I had a mystery flower come up in my garden.
In the back of a drawer, I found an old packet of mixed cottage garden seeds, when I was having a tidy. It was way past its' use by date, but I thought I'd give them a go, and sprinkled the whole packet over the garden bed.
Just a couple of seedlings came up....and (sadly) only one survived!
Not seeing a flower like this before, (I didn't keep the seed packet), I googled 'pink cottage garden flower', and sure enough, after a bit of scrolling, there it was.
- a Corn Cockle!
Apparently, these are found growing among the wheat in Europe.
Cheerio for now,
