People keep referring to it as a weed, yet I find it quite lovely - as do my pets; the little plant has so far met with the culinary approval of two bunnies, a guinea pig, at least one laboratory mouse, a very great number of cats and a rather quirky hen. I invariably count it as a blessing when I find it growing in a pot, and I will water that pot along with the others even if there is nothing else growing in it.
