“My Weed Garden”…

Last night it rained …so when I looked outside this morning  as I do…everything was bright and sparkling…After coffee  Bobby and I wandered around the yard and looked at my flowers, watched the birds  and looked to see if anymore little branches had fallen from our trees…Of course as I did this I had to pick a weed here and a weed there…some were just tiny sprouts in my flower pots but, the flower beds had some that had gotten ahead of me…I’ll have to give them a going over soon …It is so much easier pulling these pesky little weeds when the earth is damp…out come the roots and all …I’ve noticed that some weeds are so beautiful…so colorful  …I sometimes think they are pretty enough to have in my garden…A “Weed Garden” …Don’t know if people do it …but, I think it would be kinda neat… At least I wouldn’t have to “weed” it…If I were to have one …here are a few I like…

  YellowrocketYellow Salsify  Yarrow

 Velvet Leaf  Trumpet Creeper  Star of Bethlehem Spotted Knapweed    Purple Deadnettle   Passion Flower 

  Bearded Beggarticks  Chicory  Cheeseweed

Don’t you think my “Weed Garden” is a neat idea???

“My Kids!”…

You probably think I’m going to talk about how “My Kids” grew like “weeds” yes, they did but, my thoughts went to how in a group of regular kids …Our kids, seem to be the weeds among the flowers …I’ve seen people so put out to see our kids included in an event, a singing , a part of the picture…Yes, they are differentfunny grins, crooked bodies, loud at times, too quiet at times, dressed inappropriately sometimes…Yes, they didn’t seem to fit…I could see others that would have like to pluck those “weeds” right out …discard them…Now, that’s not the case generally…I saw more people like me…that saw their beauty …their glow  …their enthusiasm…their love …their uniqueness…That showed through…and made them so very “Special”…They helped brighten our gardens…they gave our gardens color …they gave us smiles on our faces…they made us laugh…they gave us more than we could ever give back…I liked “My Little Weed Garden”…
