Three inches tall and slight of build. Possessing nothing much to impress the eye, this weed aspires to survive in plain sight by putting down roots in the front yard planter. For two weeks and counting, rain has fallen and blown elsewhere, the gardeners have come and gone; even the hose has been moved, but this little weed still claims its spot against the warm rock. It sports luscious green tones and red highlights, topped off by yellow stars that, nearly invisible to the naked eye, only revealed themselves in this photo!
Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.
We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
