Day Eighty nine – a weed is but an unloved flower…

A weed is but an unloved flower. – Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I love to garden so this sentiment comes with a caveat…

A morning glory opening in bright purples, pinks, and coneflower blues to the morning sun is related to what we consider a big old pest here in Colorado – bind weed!  It wraps around and insinuates itself into your garden, binds and chokes your plants.  Just a tiny difference in it’s genetic code and this plant goes from the Victorian flower for loving someone in vain to an outlawed noxious weed!

Just a bit of attention and love can do amazing things but sometimes a weed is just that.

Until tomorrow.
