Most consider it a weed.
I collected seeds and intentionally added it to my meadow plantings.

It supports a pretty moth, and goldfinch love the seeds I'm told.

Yep. Back in the day.

I must say that we seem to have revived Wildlife Gardeners a good bit...maybe not to the glory days, but it is still nice to see.

Beautiful photos, Gloria!

I had not been back on WG for a while myself. There seem to be some new members--and obviously, people are still gardening!

Looking good, Gloria.

I love the picture from your front yard.

Cute hobbit house.

The rain this weekend is going to create a jungle in our garden.

We finally got some rain last weekend too.
I wish it would produce the flowers that you have, instead our rain is going to produce bumper crops of weeds. Hopefully there is enough "desirable" plants getting started in all the weeds so that in a couple of years the weeds will be on the short end of the stick.
