Who was the one that got to decide what was a 'flower' and what was a 'weed'? Was the decision based on:
~ ease to grow?
~ where it was growing?
I'm sure there was some 'scientific' reason for calling a weed a weed and a flower a flower.
But come on... are these not beautiful?
These grow in ditches and in fields. They are not dandelions. I'm not sure what they are. They do not flower first like a dandelion, they open straight to a poof ball and last a really long time. If you put your thumb and your middle finger together with both hands to make a circle, that is how big they are. (about 5 inches across)
So what are they? Does anyone know?
What ever they are, put them in with a few wild grasses and 'weeds' and they make for a very beautiful display I think.
Have a Happy Sunday!
