I don’t know what it is with me and weeds, but I just love ’em. If I see a pretty weed flower, I’ll always have to pick it and bring it inside. And you know how I love my dandelions.
I even love pulling them in the garden. One tiny weed can have root systems that go on forever. It’s pretty fascinating actually.
We have these little white flowered weeds growing in last year’s soy bean field next to our property so I had to grab some and see how they would do in the house.
Look at those cute little heart-shaped leaves!
I picked two bouquets: One large and this smaller one.
This is what happened to the table under the smaller one, so you can image under the larger bouquet. Best to stick to just a few sprigs of this one, I think.
These certainly aren’t the flowers for a big fancy shmancy table setting. If you have an old farmhouse in slight disrepair like mine though, they’re free, and sometimes they’re just the right thing!
Do you ever find random weed flowers and use them inside?
