Have you ever gotten up-close and personal with any of those tiny flowers you find growing wild in your back yard or that have crept into your garden space to nestle alongside your Narcissus and Phlox?
I decided to do just that over the past few days.
It’s amazing what we trod upon as we go about our daily business.
Are these plants somehow not as important as those we lovingly cultivate through seeds, bulbs or cuttings?
In some cases, probably not.
Some of these small flowering plants are considered to be invasives. If not actually invasive, they may still be non-natives.
And most of them are probably referred to with that dreaded word — weed.
Whatever they may be considered — wildflower, weed, native, invasive — they’re still quite beautiful close up.
