You Say Po-tay-to (or Flower), I Say Pot-tah-to (or Weed)

So pretty...
...for a weed. This is oxalis, which is grown on purpose by some folks as "shamrock," but here--at least in my yard--it's a weed. It's especially pesky because it reproduces by making lots of little corms that remain in the soil when you pull the weed. It really is quite sweet and pretty!

My yard is so full of weeds that I would welcome some that look so pretty.....but I have heard of oxalis and don't plan to go there.
