Long Live the Weeds
Janet Bone, Scotland,
the poem Inversnaid - by Gerard Manley Hopkins, and more recently
by Richard Mabey’s book Weeds, I have come to admire the
weeds in my garden. Their apparent fragility and beauty belies
their strength, virility and adaptability.
I was planning to make a florilegium of them all - until I counted
34, and decided instead to choose a few of my favourites!
