Invasive Weeds Are Beautiful

I think weeds get a bad rap.

I’ve never seen native plants pull this off.

Beautiful, really.

Enough to inspire for an entire year.

Even invasive weeds, like knapweed.

Maybe it’s not all about rangeland and cattle. Just saying.

    • I have noticed that the cattle on the sagebrush hills here eat the weeds, and the deer eat the hawk skeleton weed. I’m not sure why they’re all maligned. Well, skeleton weed, ok, it’s just plain ugly. This is a great article, thanks. >


  1. I don’t know what it’s about, but your eye is certainly involved. These are just gorgeous. Very oriental in their quiet calm and spareness. I don’t care where you get your inspiration, Harold, just keep on doin’ it!
