There are no gardening mistakes, only experiments.

The isn't a picture of what we grew this summer. We grew tomatoes and peppers and basil. But if we had grown this in our garden and realized it wasn't a vegetable, we would call it an experiment.
That's a lie. We wouldn't call it anything. We probably would have pulled it and thrown it aside as a weed. And then we wouldn't have this pretty picture.
That reminds me of the old saying, "A pretty picture of a weed is nice."
Granted it's not a common saying.
