A weed is but an unloved flower. – Ella Wheeler Wilcox
I love to garden so this sentiment comes with a caveat…
A morning glory opening in bright purples, pinks, and coneflower blues to the morning sun is related to what we consider a big old pest here in Colorado – bind weed! It wraps around and insinuates itself into your garden, binds and chokes your plants. Just a tiny difference in it’s genetic code and this plant goes from the Victorian flower for loving someone in vain to an outlawed noxious weed!
Just a bit of attention and love can do amazing things but sometimes a weed is just that.
