Uninvited guests

I've had a lot of luck with random plants accidentally sowing themselves in the garden, both front and back - one of the highlights in the front right now (and one of the few plants not to be entirely swamped by the rampant lavender) is this snapdragon, which appeared out of nowhere last year and is looking even better now. Apart from the ubiquitous perennial cornflowers and the yellow corydalis, there are also some love-in-a-mists which have grown up under the palm tree, one of the few plants that can actually survive in that soil (photo a bit blurry, alas).

The funniest visitor, though, has turned up underneath the bird table, and is liable to be pulled up very shortly before I get arrested... what do they put in that birdseed??
