    I like to forget about them through the winter. Ahhh! The weedless time of the year ...

    After awhile, I become embarrassed that I'm spending so much time on them in the spring and have once again, forgotten what they are! Many of our weeds are common to gardens, worldwide! They adapt well to the entire process.

    I've made good use of the Virginia Tech guide (LINK). But, I've gotta guess at the name to find the ID, easily. The pictures are great!

    Recently, I came across Oregon State University's weed guide (LINK). I don't find the pictures all that wonderful but browsing them, may make a search a little quicker. Click the name to see more information and pictures.

    Do you have a favorite weed guide?

    Helpful! I pinned them both. Although for the grasses, I will have to study up on my botany terms. I am more of a visual learner!

    same here, it takes me a while to memorize things and i never did get very good at taxonomy. i did have botany in college, but we did a lot of study on mosses because that was what the instructor was into. it's all interesting to me. life is amazing in all forms...
