Dangerous Ribbons


The Ties That Bind

Fluttering, they wave to you. Bending and twirling, they mesmerize you. Bowing low, then shooting straight up, they compliment and then amaze you. Beware young man of grace and beauty without substance! These are the ties that bind. You will welcome their caress, but when it is too late, you will find they’ve wound round your neck. Tis not love that you should be wary of, but need and designs that masquerade as love.

An wanderer’s mother gives advice: When hiking in the fields of relationships, always wear your boots and bring plenty of water, lest you grow weak and succumb to the temptation of a lay down in the prickles.

Advice from a more practical mother: Know what you want and do not be swayed by the charms of someone who does not have your best interests at heart.

Are you surprised this came from a weed? Then, my dear…you have much to learn. But you are not alone, because so do I.

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.
