Weeds are flowers too!

It’s an interesting fact that some of the most valuable herbs are those considered “undesirable” that is to say, weeds.

Indeed, the strange human obsession to control Nature and the unshakeable conviction that everything lies on the human shoulders, fascinates me. Plants such as stinging nettle, chase-devil or ribwort are commonly regarded as a nuisance, mostly because they are common and grow pretty much everywhere. Of course, if humans in general were taught more about their uses, they might see things differently.

Sadly though, we are constantly taught about the value of gold and never about the value of plants.
