They are the unwanted kinds, blown by the wind or dropped by some birds or even insects. They need not to be planted; nobody knows for sure how they got there and it seems everyone is trying to keep them off their yard. They are just bushes that forest one’s garden. Most of them are unnoticeably just a few millimeters in sizes, so it is but natural if people just step on or pluck them without care. I for one have been trying in vain to keep them off our yard, but they never stop growing – in different kinds. But they are not just bushes or a real sore in the garden; yes they are wild, but a wilderness that comes with intricate and delicate beauty – the exquisiteness of creation. And I’m just glad I took notice of them… before plucking them off the ground.
