Pineapple Weed Heart -Guest Heart Thursday
Pineapple weed grows in places nothing else would--it flourishes in hard packed dirt, graveled lots and along paved roads. This one is growing up through the asphalt of a local driveway. If you pinch the flowers in your fingers you will smell the aroma of sweet pineapple. The flowers of this delightful weed, picked and brewed, make the most wonderfully calming tea. This plant is in the chamomile family and can be found everywhere in the Pacific Northwest in late Spring, early Summer.
Unaided by human hands, this pineapple weed grew in the perfect shape of a heart. Just perfect for Guest Heart Thursday.
