I was surprised to see this one peek its fluffy head up in our cutting garden the other day - this kind of volunteer is welcome in our garden. I think it looks better than the ones I purposely grew one or two years ago - the parents of this year's interloper.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
