Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day: My beautiful weeds
And this one? Are its delicate, orchid-pink blooms any less fair than that of Sweet William or Sea Pink?
Ah, but they are just weeds. Ordinary, early-spring weeds. Cursed by us always and rarely given a second look, for a weed by any other name would still be... a weed. That is, except for the moment I took to admire these specimens as beautiful flowers -- done so with the glazed over eyes of an eager gardener who's tired of winter drabness and hungry for spring's feast of color.
My beautiful weeds are my contribution to Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, a monthly event created by Carol at May Dreams Gardens. Weeds probably aren't what Carol had in mind for this, but honestly, that's all I've got blooming right now. Visit Carol's blog to find out what's blooming elsewhere!
