Just a few snap shots from my walk today. ❤️


May Day 23

allium vineale

this
transplant
from the east
seems out of place
here, overlooked as a wild noxious weed

From Wikipedia: Allium vineale (wild garlic, onion grass, crow garlic or stag’s garlic…also called “Dready”) is a perennial, bulb-forming species of wild onion, native to Europe, northwestern Africa and the Middle East. The species was introduced in Australia and North America, where it has become a noxious weed.

I had never seen this plant before. Of course I had to look it up!


It’s Just a Weed


it’s just a weed
you know it’s true
it’s just a weed

with blooms of blue
the first to rise
you know it’s true

feast for our eyes
a sign of spring
the first to rise

though winter clings
with one more frost
a sign of spring

seems all but lost
it will not die
with one more frost

it will survive
it’s just a weed
it will not die
it’s just a weed

Weeds – Magnetic Poetry Saturday

weeds

the loveliest flowers
bloom to life when
earth is cold and wet
and gently greening…
spring is but a
breath away
