It is almost time to start the winter cleanup in the garden and get rid of the old dead bits and pieces of last year's bounty. Even the old dry brown stalks of weeds hold a certain fragile beauty as they make way for new growth.
We aren't so enamoured with weeds when summer is here, we don't want to have to spend time pulling the weeds when there are so many other things we could be doing instead in the nice weather.
So maybe its better to leave them alone in the summer so they will be around in the winter when you are looking around for something that just screams "Take my picture!"
