“A good garden may have some weeds.” ~ Thomas Fuller

What are weeds anyway?

They are “flowers too, once you get to know them,” said A.A. Milne.

According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, a weed is “a plant whose virtues have never been discovered.” 

Doug Larson said that, “a weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows.”

Sometimes, like so-called weeds, there are things in our lives we don’t yet appreciate or love. 

And maybe some of those things have virtues and values we need to uncover. 

With love,
