Weed or Flower?
We had a beautiful day yesterday so instead of heading to the gym I decided to take Doyle out for for a run jog. While running jogging along a wooded trail by my house I noticed so many pretty flowers. It got me thinking about a discussion we had earlier in the week. What makes a flower a weed? or What makes a weed a flower? Many weeds have beautiful flowers, and what a bout wildflowers? Are they just weeds? I googled it and found that there are many answers. Most common one is a weed is something that grows with out you planting it and with out you wanting it there.
Here a few pictures I took with my phone on my way back from my run jog. ;)
These are all "weeds" and all growing wild in the woods around our house. So.... I think I have decided whether a weed or flower is in the eye of the beholder, or the hands of the weeder.Every child thinks dandelions are flowers. Who didn't give a bouquet of dandelions as a child? What Mommy hasn't received them clutched proudly in chubby toddler hands?
