I love finding volunteer plants in my garden even if some of them are more in the weed category than plants. Even some weeds are beneficial though as some act as companion plants, others are edible and others still are both. On one of the paths between the garden beds I discovered several violets. Now this doesn't surprise me as the new beds and paths on on part of a rip out we did. The Irish moss I planted in 2008 has not done as well as expected so what I'm considering is reworking that bed then transfer the violets to it. I think they may be a bit harder for that bed but I want to wait long enough to see if the Irish moss rejuvenates itself so won't be doing any transplanting until the end of the month.
