Susan,

a weed is defined by where it grows

Exactly! While I was still working, I took some photos around this place of various things including a number of wildflowers. I had pictures of Indian Blanket, Skeleton Flower, Indian Paintbrush, Bluebonnet, etc.

A guy I worked with asked about them. I told him they were wildflowers. He was interested and asked where I bought the seeds. I told him they were natives, growing wild. So he asked how I could call them wildflowers since they are just weeds!

Gene
