Weed of the day

Normal service...from my friend's back garden, a weed gone to seed.

That is so pretty. I vote this weed should stay.

Esther Montgomery said...

Is it really a weed?


Mark Willis said...

Our definition of the weed can be flexible, surely? If you like it (e.g. because it has visual appeal), then it is not a weed. The one in your photo has visual appeal - ergo, it is not a weed.
What is it, anyway?

Esther/Mark, it's definitely a weed, it was growing on the edge of a path, where it wasn't meant to and wasn't planted. Mark, i don't think there's scope for weed favouritism here, you either are one or you're not. My hope is that we gardeners will accept it's not bad to be a weed...but I have no idea what this particular one is. Laura, I agree, this weed should stay! Love the vote to keep idea too

I only feel hapless because some people make it look easy to grow 10 ft marrows or a banquet of greens whereas my courgettes got nabbed by killer slugs and I only got one raspberry. So tips and stories from people less hapless than I are more than welcome.
