This is a wasteland plant, I guess, but a cure-all. The seed-boxes out on the front steps won’t grow anything. People have donated flowers. I’ve planted I think five different things. Pretty much all dead or severely ailing. Meanwhile, this lonely plantago lanceolata volunteered, showing everyone how it’s done. When you need a flower for the Immaculate Conception, this will do the job. “Lanceolata” refers to a spear. Mary knows all about that, standing next to Jesus on the Cross when He was pierced through by soldiers spear on Calvary. A lanceolata for you, Mary.
