Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Wednesday Vignette

I have a lot of self-sowers in my garden, both annual and perennial. I don't actually recall planting this deceptively delicate-looking plant, Corydalis lutea, although I might have. I do remember planting a few other types of Corydalis, with blue or purple flowers, but they didn't return after a harsh winter. This one pops up all over, though not aggressively, often growing right in gravel. It seems to be drought-tolerant, so I've decided to harness it and spread its babies around. It's also called Fumewort or Yellow Fumitory.

Yellow flower, blue pot -- what could be better?
