Necessary Upkeep


Roots

Wide opened eyes look at my garden today, having caught a whiff of spring’s promise in the air. Beloved though they may be, the long tresses of foxtails that flow with the breeze required a thinning today. Long hair requires trimming of the split ends, and weeds, left too long in the garden do tend to take it over. Fascinating even when pulled from the ground, this weed and its companion offer a glimpse of the beauty down under.

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.
