Hailed as the green queen of eco-blogosphere, Ingrid Callot is a passionate writer of all things environmental.
Alan Alexander Milne, the famed playwright and novelist best known for his books about the adorable bear named Winnie the Pooh, once said “Weeds are flowers, too, once you get to know them.”

I couldn’t agree more. Edgardo Versoza, my most devoted friend who also plays the role of the most mischievous sprite in my life, took me out for a stroll today. As if to taunt me about that “weedy incident” on my lawn a couple of months ago, he pulled me to a corner where some charming bushes grew. I couldn’t help but adore them. The clever imp Edgardo took it as his cue to throw a horror-struck guise at me and exclaimed, “Ingrid Callot! You self-proclaimed eco goddess, how could you possibly have no inkling as to what these vile little creatures are!”
Well, how could I not know that the up-to-no-good Edgardo was out to humor himself with a dose of mockery over my vow to green living? It turned out that the fascinating shrubberies were not posies but weeds.
So, here are a few of those cunning pretty wild things that shouldn’t fool any green thumb at first sight:
