Certainty

My morning was spent digging up crocosmia in the rain.  I was fully ‘proofed and as warm and dry as could be expected in such circumstances.    Whilst playing “spot the vagrant corm”  I listened to my iPod on shuffle mode, doing my own semi-rhythmic shuffle when appropriate.  I pondered the troubles of the world and the vagaries of life.  It was then that it all became clear, that there was one certainty that I could cling to.  Next year, in the very same area that I painstakingly removed every single last trace of croc, more will appear, laughing in my face.

    • There’s crocosmia and crocosmia. Lucifer’s but, but, relatively easy to contain (I’ve done so happily for several years). OTOH, plants sold as “montbretia” (which is a synonym for crocosmia) tend to be problematic. They grow lower (around a foot or so high and tend to have orange-yellow flowers) but spread wider by corm multiplication and seed. Perhaps it’s a case that the major crocosmias (such as Lucifer) get so floppy that we chop them back once the flowers go over and so we avoid seed spread.
