Today I found a blossom on a plant I have seen for years but never
saw bloom before.  Ever since we have lived here - 40 years - there
has been an Oxalis plant growing right up next to the foundation in
front of the house, inside the drip line from the eaves.  It was obviously
not the common weed - wood sorrell, or yellow oxalis - since its leaves
were definitely larger.  Since it was not invasive, I have never pulled it
out - I am really pretty tolerant of any plant that doesn't actively impinge
on something I am trying to develop.  Anyway, today it has a bunch
of pretty pink blossoms. It is surronded by the common yellow weed,
which I have now pulled out, but seems to have enlarged its stand
considerably from past years.  As I said, I have never seen it bloom
before. I have done a bit of Google research on Oxalis, but can't seem
to pin it down exactly.  Anyway, it is one of the serendipitous results 
I often get from not overweeding.
