Weed Your Garden Day

PhotoGrid_1497401165695Today is Weed Your Garden Day — a day to remove unwanted weeds from your garden. What defines a weed is really a matter of perspective. Any plant that is in an unwanted place is viewed as a weed and, therefore, as something negative.

But how often do we take time to notice the beauty and resilience of what we think of as a “weed”? The next time you look at a plant and are quick to label it a weed, pause for a moment and consider it from a different perspective. Does it have a lovely flower? An interesting texture? A strong fragrance? See if you can find something to appreciate about it. Plants, as with most of what we encounter in our lives, are not good or evil but simply exist.

Peace and love,
