definition of a weed

The definition of a weed is “a wild plant growing where it is not wanted”. Dock is considered a common roadside weed, but because it often stands a good foot or two taller than all the other roadside weeds, it easily visible. Each of those little heart-shaped leaves is actually a flower. In late summer, they start turning various shades of pink, orange, and brown. For this these reasons, its height and its color, I find dock quite fetching. I have only ever photographed dock in autumn or winter. So I thought I would give the summer green version it’s moment in the sun, so to speak. If I like seeing dock along our roadsides, it is a still a weed?
