Milkweed weed in WV

Milkweed ready to take flight

Gone are the berries. ‘Tis the season. It’s all the rage. All the cool states have ‘em:

WEEDS.  

The weeds are coming, and we love ‘em. They are inevitable and it’s going to be huge! It is futile to fight it.

Even the names are huge: iron weed, pokeweed, goldenrod, boneseed, Queen Ann’s lace! Chinkapin, sneezeweed, sweet joe-pye weed, black-eyed Susan, sow thistle and king devil, to name a few. Vipers Bugloss, rageweed, fireweed…

But my favorite part about them is that they can be huge! 12 to15 feet tall and beautiful. And strong. Did I say huge already?

WV weeds

Red Admiral sits on a weed.

I think I like this color palate of weed season better than the pinks of spring. Yes, I know there are lots more colors in the spring, and everything is new, but weed season means we now we have purple and gold and yellow and white (so white), and then it will all be gone.

So while you can, get high on some of those weeds! The ones that are much maligned and misunderstood and neglected, or even worse, mowed down before their time.

The briers have borne their fruit, and apples are not ripe yet, but we have the weeds to thank for some awe-inspiring beauty to carry us through ‘till Fall.

Catch the spectacle before it’s gone. Take a long Labor Day weekend here to enjoy the unconventional beauty of the weeds.

Which weed is your favorite?
