“Hello. I am a small pointy thing with big ambitions. I plan to grow and change myself into a traveling whirling dervish of a weed. I am small and pointy now – and I’ll bet you almost missed my flower – but in a season’s time I small be large and round and brown and VERRRRY sharp and pointy! Then I can roll about on the highway, pop out of the dark and wake up drowsy travelers on a road trip at night, and generally have a very nice time! So I just wanted to be polite at the outset and let you know I have big plans. You might have thought the rock behind me was substantial, but wait, just you wait.”
“Have a nice day!” said the tumbleweed with attitude.
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.
