ajI seem to see this oxalis more and more.

Am I just noticing it all of a sudden, or is it new and spreading?

It’s not a plant I recall at all from my childhood. Not that I was some juvenile botanist you understand, but I did notice a lot of plants, even if I didn’t know what they were called.

A few years ago, the father in law had a brick-paved terrace, the cracks of which became crammed with the stuff. This was due in no small part to his habit of showing visitors how the seeds pinged out if you brushed against the plants.
