Is it a Weed?

What is a weed?  I have heard it said that there are sixty definitions.  For me, a weed is a plant out of place.  ~Donald Culross Peattie

A weed is but an unloved flower.  ~Ella Wheeler Wilcox 

Working the gardens can be confusing sometimes. While we do our best to make the garden sparkle, with direction from our wonderful supervisor (Rob), we sometimes run into little obstacles. The most reoccurring question we ask ourselves while clearing the unwanted guests from our gardens is, “Is this darn thing a weed or what?”

We put together some pictures bellow of the various plants we weren’t sure were weeds. See if you can figure out which of these are weeds by scrolling over the pictures bellow for the right answers!
