    You remember what Emerson said about weeds! 🙂 Seems like a lot of wildflowers are considered weeds, which is sad. I mean, who determines which flowers are weeds and which are desirable?

    • Rachael Charmley says:

      Absolutely, my friend. When I had the farm we planted wild flower meadows – it was easy becos there was so much space to let things be wild. Here its different: just two gardens and a yard. I grow lots of ‘wild’ flowers’ in between the rest, and it looks much more natural. I draw the line at dandelions and nettles though 🙂

      • Miranda Stone says:

        I don’t think anyone cares for the poor dandelions (except for those who make dandelion wine, perhaps?) Nettles–don’t they sting? Yeah, I wouldn’t want those around either.

  • I was going to say exactly the same as Miranda! I agree too – wild is good!

  • Some of my favourite garden flowers are weeds….beautiful Campanula, floating foxgloves and foamy lady’s mantle to name a few 🙂

    • Rachael Charmley says:

      Hmm. You sound like a weed gardener just like me! Or do I mean wild flower nurturer? My garden is full of feverfew at the moment. Generous drifts of pure white. And then there’s the flax I sowed a few years ago. It self seeds, and is the colour of a clear summer sky. And then… 🙂

    We have patches of weeds in our yard with such pretty flowers that at some points in the year we mow around them. It’s good to know we aren’t alone.

    Thank you for the persuasive support for shifting perspective, Rachael. Wise words and lovely image–would love to see your grounds…they sound heavenly. xo

  • i know… i know… some weeds have such pretty flowers 🙂
