I suspect the gardeners sowed this as a cover crop for while they were on furlough.

Looks almost civilised and worth a visit! Have the gardens still been maintained during lockdown? The Cher looks like it has plenty of water!

The gardeners have been on partial furlough, so you can see where they haven't been. But they were there working when I was there, putting in the summer annuals, so they will soon be on top of it again.
