When we moved into this house a couple of years ago the backyard was completely barren and the earth was dry, hard clay. Mostly due to the ridiculous practice of the gardeners spraying anything that dared grow with some kind of chemical. Now, wild chamomile has decided to sprout up in one section of the garden where last year I had planted just one plant of an entirely different chamomile plant. Sadly, the bumper crop of chamomile is being decimated by moles (or something burrowing), but my way of thinking is that they’re aerating the soil while they destroy these “free” flowers, so I’m not too pissed off about the state of affairs. Woo, optimism! 🙂
