  • What is the difference between a weed and a normal plant?

    The plant probably comes from the nursery and is exactly as the gardeners envisaged it. Beautiful, with no surprises.

    The weed, on the other hand, came into being without control or permission, no one put it there for any reason, its presence insinuates itself into our lives without prior acceptance.

    The weed overcomes the prohibition, and its soft yet wild aroma hybridizes in the environment, camouflaging itself.

    This presence ceases to be furtive in transforming itself into a bronze icon. An icon that turns the ‘not allowed’ into eternity.

    Alberto de Juan
