Today’s Flower a Day (or rather today’s riot of tiny flowers) is the infamous Japanese Knotweed. I know it as an invasive species and have even watched it grow what could well be a foot a day, along a walk we take. As it grows it takes over the footpath and at times as I struggle to get past it I have purposely broken whole stems off it, knowing it will not be affected in the least. This particular one, however, was carefully nurtured by a friend who could not get it to grow at all for years. This year it grew for her into an orderly bush, not at all as vigorous as the one I described. So as it was so well mannered I decided this was the one to feature. A wild thing tamed is a little easier to photograph. Enjoy a little bit of wildness today, my friends!
