Well, it appears that is the case right now with my constantly tended, and yet so fledgling, garden.
Last year I posted (with confidence, I might add) this photo and the caption "gardening success."
This year, I am posting the same photo but with the caption "Unidentified Garden Object."
Is this yellow flower I was so proud to have blooming last year, actually a weed?
And if so, why didn't anyone tell me it was a weed and not a flower I should be bragging about as a sign of my totally awesome gardening skills?
Oh well, flower or weed it doesn't really matter.
As my mom always says: weeds are just flowers that nobody wants.
So tell me, what do you think? Is my Unidentified Garden Object a flower or a weed?
