A weed is but an unloved flower.”
–Ella Wheeler Wilcox
How do we decide which plants are weeds? and which are deserving of being labelled flowers? Perhaps there is a rational, horticultural answer to that, but to me it seems to be an arbitrary determination.
I’ve taken a few snapshots of the “weeds” blooming in and around my yard the last few weeks, and I think they are as lovely as any hothouse flower.
It causes me to wonder…how did we decide that one bloom should be considered a worthy flower —
should be relegated to the status of unwanted intruder?
I can’t see why one flower should rank higher than another. Can you?
