Weeds

Weeds, I learned in Master Gardener training, are plants that grow where hey are not wanted. That was the case with this one; it popped up in my lawn and instead of pulling it out and throwing it away, I dug it up, cleaned it up a bit and put it in a small clay pot. Its leaves are a healthy green (they look like mint) and the flowers are a pale, pale blue. I don't think I'm going to form any particular attachment to this plant, but it looks nice enough to keep it until it's finished for the season.
