Thanks Kevin-that is ever so true.

There has just been a discussion in the media about our compulsion to rid our gardens and driveways of so-called "weeds" (flowers in the wrong place), often involving chemicals which are dangerous to both wildlife, and ultimately, to humans.

Much of the advertising hysteria about "weeding" seems to be most virulent around the onset of spring and summer, driven of course by the chemical and mechanical implement manufacturers' need for profit, which, as in many other matters, overides all other considerations: "Follow the money"-as they say.

May I point you also to a related WOL blogpost:

That's very true, Kevin. I completely agree with this. This is sounds like an "environmental" or "nature" slogan, which is very effective.
Thank you.

So true, nature nurtures. Even the smallest weed blowing in the wind can uplift the mind. I like the simplicity of this poem, while carrying a strong message to nurture nature as much as we can.
