My moment of glory was strolling along Trinity Street
about 20 years ago spotted an odd looking plant, picked a stem took it home looked in various books and could not identify it so took it in to Baldwins where a very nice lady assistant said she had never seen anything like it before and offered to look it up later...If my archaic brain serves me well she said it was a Montia perfolatum(?) I think it was a member of the spurge family square stemmed as I recall.
I used to look at all the weeds growing on the walks to the school, still find my eye scanning the wilderness that passes for my garden now days!
