When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

I have this growing in a patch in my garden never knew what it was or even if it's a plant or weed thought I'd leave it until its finished flowering then pull it up

Mine popped up all over a new bed that I cleared round my tulip tree. I’m not sure if the seeds were already in the ground, in the leaf mould I put on top or scattered by the birds but it’s been a mystery until it flowered. I think it’s really pretty @carolgs

Mine too in a bed that I enlarged a little last year, I love them there so sweet I thought they were some sort of dicentra, I never fed the birds last year as my old dog scared them all off! It must have come in a plant I bought

Looks like something I've been pulling up. Basal leaves before it grows up and flowers?

Oh it has a pretty flower that's a bonus. I have a blackberry and wine corydalis that is very similar ground cover 💕💕

It’s a common wildflower so it could have come from anywhere I suppose. It is very sweet @carolgs

I’m quite happy if it goes bananas, for a while at least Val @valjones-hughes

Not really Leslie. I’ll tag you in the photo I took before it was obvious what it was 🧐 @lesliecole49

I thought it looked very like corydalis too. It can stay - for now 😉😂 @Keely
