An echo of myself has appeared in the garden next door to my old home.
The Cotton Thistle
Onopordum acanthium The Cotton Thistle - this is a biennial plant. It seeds one year, germinates and grows. The next year it flowers, sets seed and dies. I grew it forty years ago. Is this a long buried seed of my own plant? Or perhaps my neighbour has more recently grown its offspring and it has returned yet again as a great-great grandchild.
