Hey, guess what. Now you can consider some of the complaining in yesterday’s entry null and void. Some — not all. Never all.
You may recall that I complained, among many other things, about the wind. Because it is windy every day in Minnesota. You’d think that would accustom a person to it, but sometimes it just doesn’t work that way. As today is another day in Minnesota, it is, consequently, windy. Even windier than yesterday!
But that’s not the point. Today I came out to the kitchen and saw that a new flower on the little shoot of the wildflower I plucked from alongside the highway yesterday had bloomed. I wasn’t expecting that because I thought all the rest of the flowers were spent, and I didn’t look terribly carefully at the shoot to see if there were any unopened buds.
So anyway, that is chicory. MN Wildflowers says of its status: “Invasive – ERADICATE!” Uh oh.
