Default Unexpected waif and stray

Went down to our local cafe for lunch, a toasted BLT sandwich, today and
when we came back there was a plant on our doorstep, no note, nothing, just
a plant in a Sainsbury's bag, not even a pot. Looks like a Dracaena of some
sort, rather bamboo like, but not the "Heavenly Bamboo" sticks one sees
although it could possibly be the same species. Potted up and in the
greenhouse now.
Hope whoever left it doesn't ever have any unwanted children.

When we moved into our (new) house 49 years ago we found a spray of
flowers had been left in the porch, no note, or any means of I/D of the
donor.
We never did find out, despite asking neighbours, and the only thing
that occurred to us was that the flower shop just the other end of a
block might have left them.

OTOH, the site of our houses was once occupied by gypsies...
