Transitions are pivotal. To hikers it is the fork in the road and the alternative adventures that lie beyond. To river walkers it is the boulders in the stream that can lead to many different routes – some safe, some not. And to a ladybug, it is the pupa stage. Did the horehound leaf, being a kind host, feel sympathetic and wish to camoflauge this fledgling? It grew spots, as if to hide the traveler from danger. In times of change, it’s nice to have company.
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.
