I was so excited about finding the Chickweed, that I decided to "google" it. Among the first 20 hits, there was a pretty good Wikipedia article on the plant and 19 websites of purveyors of herbicides.
You see, despite its beauty, its nutritional value, and its medicinal properties, it is a WEED, and we must hate weeds, musn't we? So, let the springtime rants begin. Writing again in defense of weeds, I am also excited that most likely tonight my blog will reach 90,000 page views! I love round numbers, and I love knowing that there have been 90,000 visits. There's nothing to sell here, either. Just sharing the excitement of wandering and communing with nature. I also love receiving questions and having people share their photos and observations.
