While the yellow rose yesterday was the brightest thing in the garden, this hawkweed flower (along with its many fellows) was the brightest thing in the rough bit of ground next to the garden.
I’m always amazed by the number of blooms to be found this time of year, and most of them are weeds.
But what are weeds?
A well-known definition is ‘a plant in the wrong place’, but what exactly is the wrong place? Sometimes so-called weeds are exactly in the right place!
Beautiful wild flowers can be dismissed simply because they’ve got their feet under the table.
Sometimes it pays to look at them one at a time, just for what they are.
