What at first glance looks like a scraggly weed, growing in profusion along railway tracks, turns out to be a beautiful, interesting plant close up. I find myself guilty, of late, of not taking the time to look at some of the more mundane plants that grow in my area, north of Markham, Ontario.
This is a prime example. I’ve seen vast patches of Garlic Mustard but never taken the time to really look at it. I’m learning daily to appreciate the little things, which surprise me, when given time.

Garlic mustard is an invasive plant that takes over whatever area it appears in. There are efforts to limit the damage it does in certain areas in our part of the world, but is seems to be a losing battle.
Yes, I’m seeing it everywhere lately.
There is a good conversation about this topic also on the facebook page “Grand River Gardeners”.
