In the desert, it is the sun that rules, fostering those who heed its ways, and punishing those who are foolhardy in the approach to life. All bow down to the sun and its relentless power. This sturdy waxy weed respects the sun’s power by keeping it close to its heart, while surviving in a bit of shade, growing low instead of soaring into the sky. In return, a halo of concentrated sunlight blesses the green growth. But should you be so nonchalant as to stare too long, you will get burned.
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.
