A Weed is a plant whose virtues have not been discovered!

I have always loved flowers. My winter months are spent pouring over gardening magazines and books, or  gazing at one of the many flower and bulb catalogs I get in the mail.   Spring finally arrives and there I am digging, planting, and fertilizing all my precious purchases anxiously awaiting for them to show some life.  I check on my seedlings and bulbs every morning  until one day, I see something green emerging  from the cold ground.  Is it the daffodils I planted or maybe the pink peony that has erupted from the soil? No, it is a....... WEED!  I get angry and yank it  up. How dare a weed sprout where I have planned  my perfect garden to be?   I discovered that for every weed I pulled, many others would grow fast and furiously to take its place.   Now, I lost interest in my flowers after my constant fight with the weeds. This year I did not spend time looking at books or catalogs, nor have I sprayed, fertilized or fretted.  My yard is green and there are flowers blooming but not the ones of my choosing. My flower beds are covered in weeds.  Some are waist high with the most interesting seed pods. Others, are covered in small pink flowers. I have declared a truce with the weeds. I have spent some of my spare time taking photographs of them and the little bugs that enjoy crawling on them. The most important thing I have learned is that a weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows.
