for the love of weeds

it’s that time of year.

weeds are popping up all over the place including our lawn and the empty lot down the street from us.

but i decided that these weeds deserve a little more than a passing glance.  and so i’m geeking out on native wildflowers with my friends at focusing on life today.  i would be delighted to have you come by visit me there.

after all…weeds are flowers too.  :)

    Lovely capture, I love weeds too and I agree with a.a. Milne.

    Some weeds have such pretty flowers – we often pull them up before their beauty is developed. Nicely quoted.

  3. Lovely photos…..showing off the plant’s true beauty ????

  4. I have no recollection of typing those question marks…..please ignore them!

    LOL! Sometimes my mantra about the yard is, “if it’s green, it’s acceptable!” I think this wildflower is named Henbit. We have lots of it in our area. And it’s only a weed if it’s growing where you don’t want it to grow, right? :-)

    If weeds can be so beautiful, there’s hope for the rest of us! Lovely photos, stunning light.

    Weeds are an unwanted plant. Surely that can’t be a weed . . . I would really want it. Beautifully done.
