A Plant in the Post

What constitutes a wild flower? Among Jude’s definitions are ones that haven’t been planted. I totally admire the tenacity of plants that burst up between rocks, through tiny gaps in paving stones and I’ve even seen Buddleia growing roof on guttering, three floors up. So, wild Campanula does grow in the UK, but this is an escapee, a seed deposited by the wind perhaps, that managed to attach itself to a minute grain of earthy material to help it germinate. I think the spot it’s chosen, attached to a container for things going on a journey, is a perfect foil for its wild spirit, do you agree?
