Hello (sorry, I don't know your name)
My name is Bernie and I love many weeds. The noble and useful/beautiful ones anyway.
Thank you for creating this site.
I'm a fan of mullein. Just love their strength and style. I have a photo of a pair of huge Great Mullein that I would like to share with you. They grew in our side yard along with a patch of yellow ox eye daisys. How can I send you a pic?
