If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day... EB White

While on a walk yesterday I noticed a thistle plant by the park sign. My initial reaction was the park staff need to get busy and do some weeding. Then I thought some more and recalled the many goldfinches that might appreciate this misplaced "weed".
Sure enough, it turned out there were a couple of goldfinches enjoying that very thistle plant and the many thistle seeds it produced.
So it seems, one person's weed is another bird's supper.
