First on the scene – last to leave

Opportunistic

Propagate brilliantly

Efficient

Thrive where others struggle

Become the new ‘normal’

Difficult to get rid of

WEEDS

When I was younger we were on a family camping trip. In the morning we went on a hike, escorted by a local ranger. He would point out various plants and say, “Weed, or wildflower?” His point was that depending upon the context, one person’s weed was someone else’s wildflower.

Weeds are in the eyes of the beholder.
