As I sat down to wrestle with dividing an overgrown hosta plant into smaller sections (for transplanting), I noticed other wonderful weeds growing nearby. There’s the golden ragwort getting ready to bloom . . .
. . . the daisy fleabane sprouting up . . .
. . . and the chickweed flourishing.
After completing the hosta transplants, I returned to the house and discovered the redbud tree was surrounded with bees delighting in this warm Spring day.
I’d like to go back and gather some of that chickweed for my next salad — or maybe a grilled cheese sandwich.
