Sensitive weeds?

Weed?In this pot you can see the calamint, a small garlic plant ready to be harvested, and some weeds. But look closely...

Mimosa pudicaDo you remember my Mimosa Pudica (sensitive plant)?
It was hard to get it from seeds, and it died before blooming.
I noticed this weed days ago, but I waited to see if it was reactive to touch: it's a mimosa pudica, sprouted as a weed between calamint and garlic!
I don't know how it happened, I can only guess... and hope that this plant may be luckier than the first.
