“May your life be like a wildflower, growing freely in the beauty and joy of each day.”

 Native American Proverb

“Here’s the thing about wildflowers they take root wherever they are grow strong through the wind, rain, pain, sunshine, blue skies and starless nights they dance, even when it seems there is nothing worth dancing for they bloom with or without you”  Alisha Christensen

What is a wildflower?

Wildflowers are said to grow naturally rather than cultivated.

It’s not intentionally seeded or planted.

I am not sure of the name of the above flower, but I guess it belongs to the dandelions category.

Some confusion as to dandelions is wildflowers, weeds or in between.

Why wildflowers matter?

“Love is like wildflowers; It’s often found in the most unlikely places.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

✔Wildflowers support insects.

✔Wildflowers attract pollinators( bees etc) and more the pollinator population better for the humans because many of our fruits, vegetable and nuts depend on the pollinators.

✔Some of the wildflowers contain compounds that are used in drugs for treating certain diseases.

✔Wildflowers are said to keep the soil healthy with the roots of the plants spreading and stabilising the soil.

✔And wildflowers are so colourful, just by watching them one is at peace with joy and happiness.

Weeds/Wildflowers is a confusing subject to me.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. You covered wildflowers really well, Ptp.
    Your quotes are most apt and it is hard to tell the difference when a weed is so useful.
    I loved the photo of the dandelion.
    Thanks for joining in with Friendly Friday.
