When I moved this Hypericum, also known as Rose of Sharon, from one place to another in the garden, I was unaware that a handful of crocosmia corms had hidden themselves in the clump of earth surrounding the shrub's roots.
The result was a ready-made bouquet of flowers, the plain, daisy-shaped, lemon yellow/egg yoke yellow of the hypericum's flowers and the dramatic, orangey yellow shapes of the crocosmia flowers go beautifully together.
Both plants are very common and on their own hardly worth a second look.

I love it when things come together.
Alone, we are nothing,
We are ordinary, everyday clay,
not "the stuff that dreams are made on".
But put us together,
and we are twice as strong,
twice as beautiful,
we give and take twice as much pleasure in
simply being alive.
Side by side,
hand in hand,
a sorrow shared is a sorrow halved,
a pleasure shared is a pleasure doubled.
