"A weed is but an unloved flower," Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
Jewelweed grows wild though the forest which surrounds my house. I spend lots of time pulling it out, when young, it's easy to remove.
But there are always plants I don't get to and that's when I'm reminded of the beautiful flower jewelweed produces.
It's actually a type of impatiens (Impatiens capensis)and the bees love it.
Take a close look at the flowers around your garden, I might just leave a few more to flower next year.
The common dayflower is a weed I never pull.
Everyone loves blue in the garden...right?
I love the sky blue flowers and the touch of yellow on the inside of the flower.
Not all weeds need to be obliterated. What's considered a weed and what isn't is all in our mind. You either like the plant or you don't.
"Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them," A.A. Milne.
