beautiful weeds

It’s no secret I have an affection for weeds. I’ve adored dandelions (more than once), cautiously sung the praises of invasive species and, most recently, touted the glories of thistles. I’m thinking the beautiful weeds could become a pet project…

In the mean time, I’ll share a new favorite: the sow thistle that sprouted in the rock wall along the shore at the cabin. The sunny yellow blooms cast such cheer against the iron-stained darkness of the lake. Like a splash of lemon brightening a glass of strong, black tea.
