Weeds. No one likes them.  But at a closer look some are exquisite little jewels.

The colors entice pollinators that enable the sweet little weeds to continue on their eternal journey through the garden beds.

Many are smaller than the tip of a pinkie finger. And yet their roots run deep and spread unnoticed under ground.

Weeds.  Exquisitely beautiful, but feared by gardeners.

    What a good point! Just yesterday I saw some pretty yellow flowers along side of the street, but then I got closer and saw they were “just” dandelions. And then I thought, “well, does the fact that they are weeds really make them less pretty?” You are so right!
