There's always something new at Manhattan's oldest house

Learning to identify...even the weeds!

What makes a weed?  Many plants we consider weeds were brought to the US as ornamental plants or crop foods.  Others came invasively from unintentional sources.  Still others are actually native plants that have opportunistically found their ways into our gardens. Whatever their origin they're simply something every gardener will have to deal with year after year, but I think they're interesting!  Here's some examples of weeds I found at Roger Morris park recently.
