I started to see the beauty in mullein in fields and meadows where I would see it growing wild. So this year, when it started to grow in my side yard, I just let the "weed" stay instead of pulling it up. Today we saw a downy woodpecker perched on the side of it for several minutes vigorously eating the seeds. What a treat! A weed is only a plant growing where it isn't wanted. Well, now it's wanted. It stays!
