How cute! It made me think for a minute - Although it's supposed to be an annual, that henbit must be acting like a perennial, coming back from the same spot every year? Right?

Yes, it does! We have a patch of it by the sidewalk. In the winter, it fills that corner. When spring comes, the St.Augustine grass fills in and the Henbit disappears until winter again. I believe a bird might have planted the one in the photo.

I love seeing Henbit in early Spring because I know that Spring is here no matter what the calendar date ! I also know most people consider it a weed, but I love to see a field of purple or see it growing along the road. So pretty !! And like they say, one man's weed is another man's flower ! LOL
