Let the Weeding Begin…!

Sketch and closeup of henbit weeds

A weed is just a plant out of place?

 I think this is “henbit” – fascinating name, especially given my current fascination with chickens!  I’ve always like this weed – it’s fuzzy, it’s purple-ish, and the tiny blossoms always light up in the sunshine.  If you pick a stem, and look VERY close, you’ll see that those blossoms are almost like orchids, with deep purple spots down inside their fuzzy throats.  Lovely!

    Shame these are in the weeds category, so pretty, and you do them justice. Beautiful drawing Kerry.
