Childhood games played on the big green lawn: cartoon tag, kick the can… bikes ridden at breakneck speed down the driveway and onto the tennis court… hide and seek in the bushes and around the oak tree…and peek-a-boo in the weed garden. One cannot help but smile and be glad when we see children playing because we remember the exhilaration! These weeds play along in their sneaky version of peek-a-boo. They slyly glance out from under their hoods to watch for a new playmate. When the wind plays along, and rattles the stems and husks, children find delightful natural missiles, perfect for hurling at one another. But even if the weeds go unnoticed, they can join in the fun by hopping onto a sock, or t-shirt or jean hem and race, skip, sprint and play freeze tag with the best of them.
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.
