Perhaps the greatest defense of weeds is contained in the last stanza of Gerard Manley Hopkins' poem Inversnaid:"What would the world be, once bereft,of wet and wildness? Let them be left.O let them be left; wildness and wet;Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet."
which comes from an interesting article on Wikipedia. A 'weed' is only vegetation in an 'inappropriate place' buuuut .. who decides?

|yep, had to put a fence around this lot to keep 'em in .. heh|
At what point does the seed of a weed become a need?
