The wonder of weeds...

Did you ever stop and really look at a plant? A flower? A weed? Any kind of plant growing in nature? They're amazing. I settled on this particular weed because of its ties to my childhood. Detach the long stem and head of the plant, wrap the stem around itself once, tighten the loop, pull forward toward the head - and wham! The head pops off smashing into whatever (or "whoever") you're aimed at! Hours of fun back in the day!

Now I'm happy to sit quietly and draw it. What does that tell you? What energy kids have!
