Mysterious seeds are sprouting en masse among the perennials on the slope. They do not look like weeds, and I assume they are the seeds of something I planted. But I don’t know what. As of yet, the shoots are so new, so thin and featureless that they bear no resemblance to any actual plant: they are like green pieces of string. I suspect Allium; I believe I planted a variety. I can imagine the threads growing into Allium plants.

There are dozens and dozens of them. I assume not all of them will survive, but if even a fraction of them do, they will have conquered a big part of the slope. That might be a good thing. Or not.
