What is a Weed?

I remember one year, many, many, and I mean many moons ago,  as I was walking to school, I picked a beautiful flower arrangement for my first-grade teacher at St. Pauls Lutheran school in Farmington Mo.   I was so disappointed when she immediately threw them away.

Most teachers would pretend they like them but not her, she told me they were nothing but weeds.    Maybe she was using it as a teaching moment but…

To this day I still think a yard full of dandelions can be beautiful, even as they turn to seed and start floating away.  I guess we learn to judge things early….a flower can be a weed while a weed can also be a flower – come to think of it, it can be just like people.
