A Weed by Any Other Name

orange tickseed and yellow trefoil
A weed by any other name - or in particular tickseed and trefoil - is a bouquet in my house. Isn't it pretty? Tickseed isn't a weed here, but I've heard it's a common wildflower/weed in other parts of the country. Where I live, trefoil is considered a weed, but in other places it's actually planted and desired. Lucky for me I have a ton of volunteer trefoil cheering up my garden right now.

When I do my flowerbed reno I'll be saving both of these weeds. Do you have any "weeds" that you love?

Those flowers are so pretty!

We have "volunteer" marigolds and violas all over the yard. I love them both, and so enjoy seeing them pop up in odd places where I know I didn't plant them. :-)
