Saving the planet
My youngest showed up with this little purple "flower" on his walk home from school. He told me he got it for our house so it could make fresh air so we could breathe and not die. 'Cause that's what plants do, right mom? He's environmentally conscious that way. Of course his ever-practical older brother had to add that it was probably covered with pollen, and that makes him not able to breathe. Either way, this little pollen-covered weed has taken its place of honor in its own little vase on the kitchen island. And I love it!
