I love your humorous style. It's true that weeds have many useful attributes too!

Who woulda thunk! Weeds are good. I definately agree that they are hardy. In an open field I love the "wild flowers", but I can't say I'd want them in my garden - even as sad looking as my garden is since returning from my holiday!!

Loved the creativity of this author - and also the wit. Very fine writing. An enjoyable read.
You and my neighbor ought to get together, lol. Seriously though, we allergy sufferers have a bone to pick with you. Dandelions I don't mind, but there are several that make me ill, such as pigweed. That said, this is very funny. Kudos to you!

I'm sitting here with the biggest smile! This is truly delightful and creative! "For instance, weíve all heard of hemlock, a notoriously shady character. He has a rap sheet thatís longer than a sunflower is tall." I love it! The wit, the creative "take" on the topic ... it all adds up to an excellent piece! Awesome! :)

I always wondered why weeds grow so easy and fancy plants take such work. Now I know a little more. Here's a glass of COLD milkweed to you for such a fun story!

This is simply brilliant. Who would have thought of someone writing in praise of weeds and with such humour. I thought the description of hemlock truly classic.

A very entertaining and well-written piece. I liked the last line. It made me think about the seeds we scatter when we share our faith. Nicely done!

This is awesome, and thank you for not turning it into a sermon. This "weed" understood perfectly, as will everyone who reads this delightful piece of whimsy.

Entertaining, well written, story that can be read on more than one level.
What a fun weed! :o)
