"A weed is a plant considered undesirable in a particular situation, "a plant in the wrong place". - Wikipedia

So often, we walk by ignorant to the beauty and power in our midst. Take for example this Narrow Leaf Plantain (plantago lanceolata). This little patch of green might seem like nothing to the untrained eye, but this plant has a long history of being able to soothe insect bites and wounds when applied topically; it can relieve colds and even urinary tract infections and gut inflammation when taken internally as a tea. 

Please be thoughtful and kind to Mother Earth, and put the lawn and weed pesticides aside. Learn about the “weeds” and why she put them there in the first place.
