Whas Dis?
« on: May 16, 2010, 07:10:21 PM »
  Got a new weed in the yard. What is it?

I was born about 100 years too early, or to late.

The leaves look a lot like cilantro, but I'm sure that's probably not what it is.

Looks to me like a Columbine flower.

Yup, shawn's got it, that is columbine.

A biennial, it spreads by seeds so will show up in new spots occasionally.  And it isn't a weed, you can buy it at the store. 

I suppose you can buy black-eye susans and shasta daisies too, and those have turned into weeds by me...

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

So funny that a plant that's "too easy" to grow is a weed!

I've been babying my California native columbines, but the slugs love them almost as much as I do.

I have planted many Columbines around the yard. For what ever reason most have died out but now I have them coming up everywhere, the seeds. Its too bad teh bees cant use them.

Columbine :)

Does not concern the bee;
