A volunteer just appeared in the garden, so it must be something winter
hardy, or it would've appeared earlier than September. Though very, very

An inch tall at this point, they are golden yellow leaves on short stems
poking staight up from the ground. They're growing in an area that was not

built up with quite a big percentage of unfinished compost & not ready for
plants until next spring.
