"X" Marks the Spot
As for the weeds, I found that the wild sweet peas where I dropped my son off at work glowed in the low-angled sunlight. Enough to get me out of the truck to walk around. Then I started to notice the others. Salsify, Chicory, Hawkweed, Filaree, etc., etc., that are called weeds in some field guides, aliens in others, and simply non-native in still others. I try to say nice things about weeds in this space from time to time, maybe to try to offset what I'm hearing more and more often about people who are not from around here. So, later today I will post 15 more photos of weeds under the title "Just Weeds," then two or three of native plants that I found among the weeds.
