The unlikely beauty of April 6th has endured a growth spurt. The flower is starting to elongate and soon petals will emerge. Perhaps a fairy will be inside? This growing process is all about strength and this weed is showing some scars of the struggle; some old age spots and a bit of browning at the edges. The purpose of a leaf is after all, to fuel the flower. So before, it was the foliage that caught the eye of passerbys. But now, this weed has toned down its colors and prepares to bloom.
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.
