Asiatic Dayflower - WEED

Happy Blooming Tuesday everyone.  I am in great hopes that you don't have this beautiful weed in your garden. As sweet and unassuming as it looks it is a killer. It loves to creep across the ground and then cover any flower that happens in its way. Forming a mat that won't let other things grow. Very difficult to rid from your garden. How I wish this beautiful blue weed could be controlled.

How can something so pretty be so evil?? Great drawing of it. I dont have that weed but I have plenty others that are evil and hard to get rid of. Why cant our plants do as well as the weeds? Sigh.

I have had this Wild Asiatic Dayflower in my front beds off and on over the years. It is invasive but so pretty.
Your drawing is lovely.
Are you creating a wild flower book?

Never heard of it but it is pretty! Too bad it's such a pain. You did a wonderful job. I like the idea of a wildflower book.
