March 28 – Weed Appreciation Day (Not as exciting as you think)

Standard

It’s weed appreciation day! It’s probably not as exciting as you think it would be, as it is a day to appreciate weeds…as in the plants. Plural. Like dandelions! Heaps of people seek out and destroy any sign of a weed in their back gardens, but are they really so bad? This guy ( http://davesgarden.com/guides/articles/view/2125/ ) talks about all the wondrous wonders of weeds and on some level I agree with him. When I was younger I used to catch the floating bundles of dandelion seeds as the blew through my back garden and collect them in one of my grandmother’s empty make-up containers. I used to believe I was saving wishes (what for I have no idea) and to this day I can’t help to try to grab them out of the air as they float by. Depending on what you’re willing to call a weed, the failed daisy-chains of your childhood were only possible because no one destroyed the existence of the plants. Weeds, dandelions in particular, are also excellent for puns:
