weeds or wildflowers?

Sometimes, when I'm out working with mom, she'll ask me a question like.. "Wyatt, is this a weed?"
I know they are weeds, but I don't tell her. I think they are pretty and we should keep them.
Hey, let's call them 'Wyatt's Wildflowers' and then we can just go play!
Well, we couldn't pass up the 'W' plants and not mention the prettiest Wisteria in Portland.
It's in the Garden of the Bishop's Close at Elk Rock. The garden is perched on the cliffs of the Willamette River. This historic 13 acre garden, is  home to many rare and interesting plants from around the world.
It's open to visitors and dogs on leash throughout the year!
This beautiful Wisteria greets visitors as they park their cars. You can sit on the big green bench underneath and gaze through the vine.

Happy Digging and Dreaming....
