Weeds of Winter

“The twelve months…
Snowy, Flowy, Blowy,
Showery, Flowery, Bowery,
Hoppy, Croppy, Droppy,
Breeze, Sneezy, Freezy.”
-George Ellis

  8. Any title with weeds and winter in it will get my attention every time. Love your shots. They don’t seem to grow here but I brought a pod back with me from ND awhile back. I think I’ll plant it this year to attrack some monarchs.
