Beautiful banner Natalie! Thumbs up

Very bad weed! Thumbs down When we first move here I sent DH out to weed whack the hillside because I had read about how bad those were. Next day I go out there to water the raspberries and here were all of those pretty purple flowers in clumps on the hillside, I asked him how come he left the weeds, his response, "I didn't think they were weeds, I thought they were pretty wildflowers". Hilarious!

That weed flower is entirely too happy! nodding Almost like it's holding its arms out, bursting with joy, pointing out that the universe is indeed unfolding as it should. Angel Weeds just don't see any of the boundaries that we do.

Thanks for the bright and beautiful reminder, Natalie! Group hug

Thanks everyone! I do not consider it a weed. I even bought this one in a one gallon container! It never spread - not even one seedling - so it was never a weed to me!

Tina, now I want to give it a hug! Hilarious!

It is very pretty.

I looked up the invasive species we have here, Spotted and Diffuse Knapweed. Thumbs down

Very close, but the plant itself looks much different. The blooms are very similar though. I can see where I'd get rid of it too. Totally looks like a weed! I do like it though! Hilarious!

Natalie, we have so many in our area they will never be eradicated, they have a very long taproot and they laugh at most chemicals. Sad

I think it's beautiful also. What color! What style! What an amazing design!
