sometimes i dream about plants. last night i dreamt about plantain….you know, that lowly lawn weed that most people dowse with poison in hopes to rid their lawn of all life except the acceptable sort of grass featured on the sides of those trucks with green thumbs.
i have been trying to encourage plantain to grow in my yard. i would be thrilled if it would consider being my ground cover along the paths and beds in both front and back yards. i’ve even saved some seeds from the ones that do grow around to scatter in other parts of the yard. and that’s sorta what was happening in my dream…plantain was growing everywhere, deeply lush and green. i could almost taste it while i questioned how much to pick to make a healing salve for my sister.
so, not a dream full of meaning…just an easy dream about a common weed.
