My Favorite Weeds

What is a weed anyway? I planted these quite intentionally. The oxalis purpura to evoke memories of my childhood's early springs. The milkweed to attract monarchs. One is working better than the other. Both are spreading.

Then there's this. These roses bloom and when the petals fall away, instead of a rose hip, a new strange little rose grows out of the head. I don't know what that's about, but it seems almost mythic.
