  1. The Self-heal in the middle sized pot, has now gone to seed. On Sunday morning, I saw a little Linnet, sitting in the middle of the pot, gorging itself on the seeds. Even just a plant in a pot, can provide food for t’birds. And what a thing to see – a wild bird, there, just outside our window, pecking away at the wild seeds. “Long live the weeds, and the wilderness yet.” – Even in a flower-pot!
