They started coming hundreds of years ago, brought over on a ship from a foreign land.

And they settled.

Unwanted, uninvited.

Spanish bluebells, big, showy. Interbred with the natives.

But shall we close the borders to them? Purge them from our patios, our gardens and woodlands? Rip up those that made this green and pleasant land their home?

Live and let live.

Please.
