|So simple and common a flower in my area of the world... yet, to me, a favorite.|
"Common chicory, Cichorium intybus, is an erect, somewhat woody, perennial herbaceous plant with bright blue flowers. Various varieties are cultivated for salad leaves, chicons (blanched buds), or for roots (var. sativum), which are baked, ground, and used as a coffee substitute and additive. It is also grown as a forage crop for livestock. It lives as a wild plant on roadsides in its native Europe, and in North America and Australia, where it has become naturalized." - Wikipedia
"The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
