One man's weeds...

... are another man's cool plants. (Or one woman's weeds, maybe.)


A variety of clover (oxalis) in bloom at the arboretum recently.


The arboretum did not plant these. They're weeds. They're in bloom all over town, in yards and planters everywhere.


Here's another species of oxalis at the arboretum. Very small and dense.


And these are in my lawn, which is the Heinz 57 varieties of weeds. Bejeweled by drizzle a couple of weeks ago.

Jerry's dad used to say that weeds are just plants growing where you don't want them.

Reluctantly, I have reinstated the word verification for all comments on this blog. I don't like it any more than you do, but the rate of breakthrough spam was even more annoying. Thanks for understanding.
