Weeds..


Roses are red,
Violets are blue;
But they don't get around
Like the dandelions do.
~Slim Acres

I am out picking flowers today..and don't forget..

Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them. ~A.A. Milne

How true....it reminds me of life as well. I often tell my students that life is a garden and that the beautiful flowers that grow need to be cultivated and cared for, because that which is beautiful is harder to maintain....we must keep watch over it. On the contrary, weeds are easy to grow. They pop up every where, they need to cultivation, and that which is undesirable is so easily manifested. However, this point of view reminds me that even in the middle of our follies, our fumblings and mistakes, there is a flower there, a beautiful one indeed, needing someone to understand it. How lovely dearest...Oh look at me, waxing philosophical here!! HEHEEEEEE and you may not even have intended to go this far...quand même...you are SUPER! Have a fabulous day dearest, Anita

I love Queen Anne's Lace...kept it in the yard until the Dr. told me I was growing "Ragweed" and that I was allergic to it. That's why my eyes water and my nose runs. DRAT!!!! Had to get it out of the garden! Love this post! Cathy
