Bee and Burdock

Not the best photo, but the burdock only flowers for about five minutes a year before the flowers turn to teazel-like seed heads. They are huge, unsightly weeds which spread like wildfire, but the bees and small brids just love them. Which goes to show there's good in everything- lesson there!!


  1. God made everything with a purpose. We might not know what it is, but it is still there.

    Thanks for the lesson.

  2. There is still beauty in that seed head and all the weeds and bugs and creepy crawlies play an important part in nature, even if us humans wish they would go away. They provide a food source for critters we do like to see, and that leads us to the whole food chain thing. Yes, an important lesson.
