Creative Challenge 266: Humble

Common Corncockle (I think)

Just a humble weed
Growing where I seed
I am so small and slight
but for room I have to fight
Stretching out my roots
spreading all my fruits
I am humble, oh so small
Your garden is my call
One day you have a surprise
The humble will demise
I will take over what you sow
The other plants will go
I am just a humble weed
Growing where I seed

  1. He might be a humble weed, but he's one of my favourite weeds. The little flowers look great when macro'd.

    1. I am not quite sure, but I think it is known as corn cockle. I just let is grow in my garden. Makes a wonderful show and fills some empty places.
