Overcoming Bloglessness

Spotted Knapweed


Centaurea maculosa



Spotted knapweed is in bloom, down by the river and up in the mountains.   It’s so pretty,  how dare they call it a noxious weed!


But it takes over, emitting a chemical that makes it hard for other plants to grow.

These frayed looking pink  blossoms are winning the fray.

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.

  1. They look like Bachelor Buttons!

    • Yes, they do. I like Bachelor Buttons too. And Cupid’s Dart is similar. I love Cupid’s Dart. Only 2 of my 6, imported from Portland, survived and one looks like it may bloom.

  2. I love that first photo.
