What's this I spied coming up through a hole in the pavement outside our local off-license? Is it...? No, it couldn't be... It is!
It looks like a pumpkin plant. It grows like a pumpkin plant. It even smells like a pumpkin plant.
The only thing not quite right are the flower buds - they look sort of spidery... Perhaps some other sort of squash.
But how... HOW???... did such a tender and nutrient-hungry plant end up growing here of all places? A spot of guerilla gardening perhaps? Someone's being very optimistic if they think it's going to last that long! However, I shall be keeping an eye on it just in case...
