Lend Me Your Shoulder?


A Place to Rest

For those who strive forward with defined plans and a vision for the future it is good to have back up. A forward thinker thinks it’s nicely necessary to have someone to lean on, someone whose nature it is to pause and contemplate their surroundings before striking out. Both parties have vision and use their perspectives to complement and enhance each other’s plans. Good partners and good friends are like that. In the weed kingdom, this horehound weed and the sahara mustard behind it are both meant to stay in place and help out their surroundings by growing, thriving, spreading and creating atmosphere.

In contrast, the weed of action: the spiraled weed seed torpedo exploded recently from its host plant and burst into the air looking for the best place to land. It had a plan, a dramatic, “change the world” plan and it was to carry it out one seed at a time. On route to world changing, the spiraled explorer found a place to rest in the welcoming soft leaves and sweet blossoms of the horehound, who was very happy to do its part. Thank you weeds, for the fine examples of community.

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.
