Thank you for your comment! This one self-seeded there, and I kept it (all the kochia in our garden self-seeded, in actual fact). It was so tiny at the beginning, and I didn't think and expect it would grow as big as this. Eventually, it covered the tiles as it grew on, and I had to walk around the plant to go up to our garden. The colour has turned into brown just recently (last weeks?), and it made a bit of a mess with fallen seeds and rain-battered leaves, so it was pulled out a few days ago. Now I can walk straight to our garden without "the obstacle," but I miss the colour (pink).
