Heads Down

Contemplating Our Next Move

You see us wave gaily in the breeze, catching the light and transfixing your eye. That’s just fine with us. We cloak ourselves with meek, graceful, delicate looks – all nice enough. But on that pivotal day, coming soon, we shall open up and launch our spurred foxtail assault on unaware passer-bys. Our swords are in their sheaths now, and our heads bowed down, like the silent ninja contemplating honor before his swift attack. So please, come closer. It’s almost time!

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.
