Green fingers

Today, it's been a few weeks since I took up gardening to relax, caring for my plants, and they finally started blooming. Excitedly, I posted a picture online, only to have a friend tell me that my "beautiful flowers" are actually weeds. Apparently, I have a talent for cultivating the unwanted. FML

Weeds? Weeds are in the eye of the beholder. I mean, who decided tulips were so great?

Don't worry; there are people out there who sell the same weeds in paper baggies under the name "garden prairie mix" or "assorted wild flowers". Good luck with your Madagascar weed and its pretty pink flowers!

Flowers are flowers. You think bees care?

if you find them pretty, cultivate them. the only difference between a dandelion and a tulip is what society says

Hey, if those plants are the ones who make you happy and relax, keep gardening them. There is no such thing as weed in Nature anyway, any plant has an utility in the ecosystem where it naturally grows. This is a notion made for human needs. And so, if those ones fulfill your need to be relaxed, they are not weed.

Only the green grass lawn mafia calls them weeds. If you are pleased with your investment I. time to grow them, then you are a success. Every plant fills a niche/need. Just because it doesn't fit their narrow-minded monoculture ideology does not mean it us unwanted or unneeded.

i grow weeds on purpose, and they're beautiful.
