What you doing here?

So pretty yet unwanted

Little wild flower


Wild Flower 2

I found this purple flower growing in the wild asparagus pot. At first I thought it was a flower from the asparagus, until I remembered that the asparagus makes white flowers, that later turn into tiny red berries.

Then I saw that the weed had grown up from the lawn at the bottom of the stoep and was actually very tall!

Well, pretty as it is, it’s gone now, as I’ve just weeded there, on my hands and knees.

You may say, “Shame man!” (Well, if you’re South African, that’s the expression you’d use!) But this time of year in Cape Town, Everything grows madly. If I want my flowers to stand a chance of not being strangled to death, I have to weed constantly.

But no worries, this wild flower grows all around my garden.

    Lovely little wild flower!πŸ™‚ I’m always envious of your wonderful blue skies and now I have to be envious of your weeds. The other day I was weeding and did not discover a lovely flower, but did end up with half of a very large weed scattered across and stuck to my sweatshirt.😁

      haha Yes, Some of our weeds are small, delicate and pretty – but we get some massive ones too.
      Isn’t it just like a weed to stick to your top like that! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    A flower is just a weed with a posh name.
    We always look in the hedgerows where some of the prettiest flowers (weeds) are to be found. Some of them perfectly lovely in their tiny forms.

    It may be a weed, but it’s truly beautiful. Kinda like the Ugly Duckling/Swan, don’cha think?
