Smooth Hawksbeard Crepis capillaris 

Growing just outside my window. A tiny flower only around 1.5cm in size. The more I look at what we call weeds the more intriguing I find the intricacy of them. We cut them down to get rid of them but all we have done over the years is to make them more hardy - quicker to grow, faster to develop - and able to survive in spite of our actions. Now we spray them with chemicals that are disastrous to the very insects we depend upon to fertilise our food plants.
Killing off the honey bees we rely on to service and help to grow the fruits we eat.
Did the human race learn nothing from the DDT chaos years ago?
