Re: Definition of "Weed"

To segue from the topic of the day, if a rose is growing out of the tank of a 
toilet, it is still a rose, unless it causes a valve to malfunction, in which 
case it is an obstruction.

But if the rose is growing in the middle of a bean field, it becomes a weed.  
It is a "plant out of place."

Location is everything in nomenclature.
