The Wisdom of Pooh

Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.

– A.A. Milne (via Eeyore)

Pampass grass on the bluff

One of our sisters considers pampas grass to be a nuisance, and rather large weeds. I’ve always found it pretty to look at. It’s that way sometimes, weeds . . . flowers. Kinda depends on your perspective on how you see them. Probably if I had to deal with uprooting them in garden where they were unwanted, I would see them as weeds too.

Are there any weeds in my life that I would be helped by seeing them as flowers?

    Lovely photograph. I’m glad to see someone else puts grass in their photos. And yes, it is a matter of perception. I call it natural beauty. Blessings.

    There are a couple of dozen species of wildflowers in central Texas that have weed in their common name, but I find them as photogenic as any other species.
