When I moved into the cottage, I saw that the previous tenant had left a window box with some scraggly pansies in it. Given that I have the world's blackest thumb, I left well enough alone and enjoyed the box from inside the house (it can be seen from my "office").
This spring, I noticed Green Stuff in the box. That green stuff turned out to be more pansies. And there were even more in a little plot of earth in the backyard. I didn't plant them... my landlord didn't plant them... they just appeared. Very odd for pansies.
Yesterday, the lawn guys made their weekly visit, and today my box of pansies is missing.
Black thumb or not, it's almost enough to make me go to the nursery and get some more!
