Little Feathers, Lacey Blooms

Of all the common names for achillea millefolium, the one I like best is plumajillo –  ‘little feather’ – describing the shape of the leaves. I’ve always known them as ‘yarrow’ and thought of them as almost-weeds. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing; they have just the combination of toughness and delicate beauty that tends to win me over.
