Rescued Weed

Rescued WeedI found this sprig of lambs quarters on the side of the road.

It's amazing that anything could grow in a thin layer of soil over asphalt.  It lived in a pot on my deck all summer but didn't grow much bigger.

Then, the following spring, lambs quarters started showing up all over.   I put flowers in the pot with this one as a disguise.  Even the ever-vigilant landscapers missed this blatant weed hiding in plain sight.
