Without further ado - and only the second rainbow colour in, (here's the first), I'm breaking my one self-imposed parameter and embracing the No Rules Policy. Partly because there isn't a whole heap of yellow around here. But mostly, because quite some heart and soul went into this bit of rainbow.
Nurtured from seed at school, Child Number One trundled home with an uninspired-looking plantling at the end of last year. Surviving drought, abandonment over a two week holiday, an enthusiastic dog with ball and now horizontal rain, this plant is a stayer. It has the sort of resilience you'd want for your kids, even though the flashy, see-how-tall-I-am-today, homegrown alfalfa has since stolen the show.
