By definition, a weed is an unwanted plant: an irritant that upsets our sense of order and tidiness! But, when observed closely, a weed often exhibits interesting features such as form, shape, pattern, texture and colour. It can provide source material for creative development and expression

It is tempting to see a similarity in shape with artefacts or creatures e.g an item of jewellery
or, perhaps, a prehistoric creature?!
