Mother of millions is certainly the right name for this plant. To read all about it visit Mean Little Weed.
They are easy enough to thin out and I’ve done a LOT of that, there are always more cropping up here and there and everywhere. But, it’s the blooms that keep me growing these. I love them.
Here are photos taken earlier this morning.
One little teenie tiny leaflet that falls off the main plant drops to the ground and grows into a mass of babies, which then will grow and drop more leaves creating more plants. These can grow tall, I am 5’ 5 1/2” tall and some of these are a foot or so taller.
These next two photos are at the back of the property by the driveway.
This one is growing at the south end of the workshop.
These are also in the same area.
These are in the fenced caravan/clothesline area. I love how the morning dew is on them.
That’s it from Plum Cottage Gardens. Thank you all again for your wonderful words of love and encouragement at this time, via posts, emails and snail mail. They make me cry, but they also lift me up. Thank you.
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
From a headstone in Ireland
Come, ye disconsolate, where'er you languish,
Come at the shrine of God fervently kneel;
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish—
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
Thomas Moore, c.1813, published in Sacred Songs, 1816
