“A weed is a flower that nobody wants” is a quote I’m fond of. Another (from Rory Sutherland in the Spectator) is “A flower is a weed with an advertising budget”. I have one of those in my garden.
This delicate wild sweet pea with its purple flowers has inveigled its way into my garden, and I can’t bear to remove it. To me it’s definitely a flower. Would you remove it?
“This is a very charming weed
to pull it out I see no need.”
