Before You Rip Out that Skeleton Weed

… remember that dragonflies like it when they’re up in the dry grass.

It would be good to figure out why. Is it because wasp hunters like the yellow clover?

Dunno. Ma’am, you like to eat it yourself, do you know?

No, I guess not.

Well, until we figure it out together, I suggest we not be too hard on this invasive weed, no matter what they cattlemen say about it destroying range. There is no “range” here. This is not “cattle country.” Wasp country, maybe.

We have such a long journey out of colonial thinking, but, you know, we can start by accepting the ones who live here as bringing gifts.

We can figure out what they are by spending time with them.

That’s how it works.
