"A [w-e-e-d]** is no more than a flower in disguise,
which is seen through at once, if Love give a man eyes."

**Sorry peeps, had to edit this like this as started getting G+ hits from 'recreational' sites!!!


  1. Due to our house facing North and not getting much sun in the am or afternoon, we don't have anything planted in the ground but OMCs are there lots of weeds with very very purrty flowers on them

  2. Such beauty in one place ~ Gorgeous floral macro shot ~ one of nature's gems!

  3. I think some weed-y flowers are just as beautiful as cultivated flowers!! Wonderful close up shot of a lovey one today!

  4. A beautiful weedy flower

  5. And even if they are weeds, they can still be very useful. I know you can eat the dandelion leaves and my mother once made dandelion wine! Out of two full bin bags of dandelion heads (she declared to never do it again though, despite the lovely wine).

  6. Redefining weeds and flowers makes tending the garden a lot easier!

  7. Lol! The things you don't think may happen! Lovely just the same.

  8. Hello, pretty image and a lovely quote. Enjoy your day!

  9. Plants labeled weeds often have exquisite flowers (as in this picture). You probably know I'm going to ask you what it is.

      &*> It's an Australian wild shrub of the leptospermum family (tea tree)... note to self - label the plant piccies! Yxx

  10. I've stopped pulling so many weeds, and instead loving their flowers in the garden!

  11. Nice macro, YAM. namaste, janice xx
