Weed turned Wildflower
Tommy thinks I’m nuts to want to keep this monster weed around, but I can’t help but like it. Poke Berry is what I have been told it is called and it truly is a monster. Six foot tall and almost as wide, my pretty weed-turned-wildflower could be a screen or hedge if I can get them to grow where I want them.
Here it insists on being on the daylily hill behind the pole-barn. Not exactly where I wish it to be, but weeds have a tendency to do as they please with little if any regard for your wishes. But no matter. I will dig it up at the end of the season and toss the plant, seeds and all where I would like it to grow. With any luck, I shall have my Poke berry hedge just behind the half-stockade fence along the back driveway that leads to the pole-barn. I’ll be able to see it poking out from behind the Rhododendrons from the other side.
