'But a weed is simply a plant that wants
to grow where people want something else.
In blaming nature, people mistake the cul-
prit. Weeds are people's idea, not nature's.'
Author unknown

Started the day with some weeding and got
some of these in my potted plants. These
are edible and called 'parrot's tongue' in
my mother tongue. Apt description, for the
leaves are no bigger than a bird's tongue.
The idea of taking a picture and posting
it later is a thought that stays somewhere
in the recesses of my mind. Later scoured the
net for an appropriate quote but did not want
to include anything that sounded unkind. After
all, these were 'weeds' only because they happ-
ened to be where only the ornamental should
have been.
