these gorgeous wild berries are growing rampant in my yard. I don't know where they came from. I didn't plant them and they weren't here last year. I like them.

I started thinking about weeds and how I really prefer the weeds of virginia over the weeds of california. california beaches may have the virgin state beat, but california weeds are brown, hard, dry and dangerous. with names like goats head, fox tails, tumbleweeds and crab grass, west coast weeds are ugly and mean. weeds currently growing wild in my virginia yard: rose of sharon, scotch moss, wild berries and honeysuckle. they are all green and interesting.

remind me that I felt this way in august when they are taking over the garden.
