Weed In Name Only


On March 22, I found this adorable WEED. Snap! and said

"Bob, don't touch this weed, I want to see what it does, it is the only one in the yard like it, never before seen"
 Voila! on March 26th I did my daily check and there was this teeny tiny purple flower cluster. Flowers is about 1/4 inch
 I love it and may plant it in a little pot and keep it..... (stop rolling your eyes)



 I know some of you are thinking, she REALLY needs to get a life, or get out more.....

Trust me! there will be MORE weed photos. The bucket garden buckets were full of all kinds of interesting weeds,  never before seen and how did they get in the buckets? Must be birds planting them.

It isn't a weed if you like it. Weeds are only plants growing where you don't want them. It has a pretty flower.

wow, that's amazing!

a weed to one person may not be a weed to another, as many so-called weeds produce lovely flowers, like that.

fantastic shots, sandra!

wishing a great day!

That's a pretty one, I really like blue flowers. Like Diane said, it's only a weed if it grows where you don't want it too.

Susannah said...

The leaves are very pretty as are the flowers. For some reason this plant looks like something I have seen around here,but I could be wrong. Whatever the case,it makes a great photo subject.Happy snapping.

Well I like YOUR weed, but I don't like ours - ours are ugly! sandie

Another example of all those pretty little flowers, which show, on what most call weeds.

I'm sure this little flower is very happy that you gave it a chance to bloom, and are appreciating it. :-)

Actually, if you let it loose in the yard, it just might make a nice ground cover. Might not allow the doggies to tear it up as easily, as grass does. -grin-

Maybe...

Why do I know about such? Because our front lawn is happy to have such little green things, pop up in it! We don't have doggies, but the grass has gotten sparce anyway. We are content with anything GREEN, which wants to grow!!! LOL.

That's a pretty little blue flower on the weed with no name! I like the black background in your photos, how do you do that? Great shots.

RoeH said...

Heck I like weeds. As long as they are green and living, I'm okay with them. Especially dandelions. I don't understand people who kill them. They are natures little flowers.

This is a great post!!
I took a photo of a tennis ball today so, don't worry, there will be lots of us come and visit you if they take you away and of course we'll all have our cameras!! Keep shooting.
P.s. these are super macro shots.

You know, I might even get the room next to you:)good grief a tennis ball!! LOL

AudreyO said...

The purple is so pretty. To me, weeds are ugly things,this is really pretty, so not a weed LOL.

Rose said...

Lorelei would like it! It looks a bit like a mint plant to me...but not sure.

George said...

These are wonderful pictures of your latest find. We have many different weeds in our flower beds -- you're more than welcome to come and get as many as you would like. Tennessee weeds would probably do very well in Florida.

Ann said...

Actually I was thinking I wish I had more time to do what you do :)
That is a pretty little flower on that.

SweetMarie said...

This is a pretty weed! I would keep it. :) You enjoy the simple pleasures of life and that says a lot of good about you. :) Keep snapping!
