And it's edible, too, though a little bitter, as you'd expect. I just call it a "wild groundcover" and leave it where it is, most of the time :-D. (Same with the violets, which I know is another one that gives many people fits...)
Great article! I love seeing any plant I know in the limelight. These little guys are Everywhere, and I enjoy pulling them up because they are the first weeds and I have not grown tired of weeding yet. But they really do take over. I have begun mulching a la Ruth Stout, and they are not a problem in the mulched garden. The paths are their favorite places to pop up here.
I really like Grant's Pass. It usually comes out Grant's Pants when I say it aloud. I am one of those darned California poppies that blew over the border. Hope you are enjoying Ohio. I lived in Rocky River, west of Cleveland, for 2 yrs.
Pulled some more bittercress. Felt kinda bad doing it as they are cute, perky and strong.
LOL! Is that California intruder thing STILL going on? It was really bad when I was a kid, but I never could figure out what the big deal was.
Let's just say that Ohio isn't Oregon. :o)
Just looked out the window at the grassy hill behind the house. There's a pale white haze over the grass. You know, of course, what it is...
