Bucket Weeds, we LOVE them


Storm Update: Friday 6:38 AM. We are fine, just a little tree damage.

A few day ago, this vine above, about 4 feet long appeared with odd shaped, little pods that are tiny little purple flowers. I watched to see what the purple flower would do. 
the weed is in  a banana plant in a bucket that Bob's friend Sam gave him, 
woo Hoo a new species to document.


this sweet little puff appeared, much like a tiny dandelion, but only the size of a dime.





and then I noticed this long vine weed hanging out of.....


the weed is growing out of the moss rose, and I left it there to see what it will do... I LOVE WEEDS.

Let me know if anyone recognizes my new weeds.

I've got some of it growing under my Texas Sage bush, but don't know what it is.

Love these pictures.
I'm thankful you are safe.

The fluff looks a bit like a dandelion seed head doesn't it?
Glad you like weeds, so do I, some of them are real pretty but because they are collectively called weeds everyone hates them.
Lovely photographs Sandra.

Your photos make weeds look beautiful. After all weeds are only plants growing in the wrong place.

Sandra, glad to read that you are OK because as soon as the forecasters start taking hurricanes, concern about blogger friends in hurricane prone areas is on my mind. Weeds can provide the most interesting photos opps as you well know; sorry but don't know the ID of the mystery one.

GOOSE said...

Happy your OK. And my MOM likes weeds too. Some times she leaves a few just to see what they do and how they change over time. You girls are crazy. hehhehehe
Blessings,
Goose

Saw in the news and glad to hear you are fine.Mom can never take a good close up photo of that dandelion. It always out of focus and blurry. Her camera lens is not as good as your. It is interesting how they grow. It's beautiful in a way. Golden Thanks for sharing. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

So delicate and pretty! I'm always amazed when I see yet another creation that we often don't even notice - that God generously placed here on this earth with us.

I'm going to see if I can identify that plant with my 'North American Wildlife' book.

So glad you came through the storm very well.

Was thinking of you, and thinking, with little sleep the night before, bet you slept last night, after the torneado watch was over at 11PM!!!

So coooool, what you notice! With your interesting weeds. Again, cameras can make us be so much more involved with our surroundings. COOL!

Sit on hubby if you have to in order to keep him away from that fallen tree....

GOLLY gal, you sure make a weed look outstanding to where it would be welcomed in any yard. Perfect capture!

Thanking GOD you are all safe.

Hi Sandra, so glad to hear you only had minor tree damage- thankfully no damage here.
Love those rosey little flowers and fluff white balls- we have them here also.

The sun has played peek-a-boo between rain showers and rainbows this morning ~:)

Susannah said...

I told Jim this morning that - I love your blog because I learn so many new things from you ...especially concerning weeds and plants. this one is very unusual. Hope you find out what it is.

TexWisGirl said...

Chatty Crone said...

I have no idea, but I am glad you are safe! sandie

George said...

If you love weeds, I have plenty in our flower beds that I would be happy for you to come and get.

photowannabe said...

Like everyone else, so glad you are okay.
I always think of you and other friends I know in your state when it's hurricane season.
Great photos of the pretty "weed".

Madi and Mom said...

Miss Debbie said...

You have quite an adventure going on in your yard...one surprise after another!!

Ginny said...

I also love weeds! The definition of a weed is any flower you don't want growing in your yard. The definition of a flower is any flower it is hard to grow in your yard. I want to KNOW what this one is!

barbara l. hale said...

Those are very sweet weeds! Glad to hear you had no major damage. Carry on!

SweetMarie said...

These are gorgeous! I love dandelions! I have some weeds that I just think are so pretty. :)
Glad you guys are safe! We had a few small limbs fall out of our Oak tree and that's all...very grateful.:)

sparkle100-havealook.blogspot.com said...

Your weeds look so pretty.

Glad you are all safe. I sure prayed for you all.

Ann said...

That puffy white thing does resemble a dandelion, maybe a distant cousin :) I love weeds too because they are about the only thing that I never have trouble growing

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I love the weed, it's so pretty and your pictures are awesome.

Linda said...

Glad you're safe and little damage. Weeds just go on growing in their own small corner whatever else is happening all around them. That one is pretty.

Lisa RedWillow~ a Beauty seeker said...

So much adverse weather around. Its cool here still.
Lovely Lovely photos. Its nice to see something new.

Rose said...

Oh, my, love that weed hanging our of the moss rose...it is really pretty.

Glad all is okay there.

Cranberry Morning said...

I think the long vine is moneywort. If it turns out to be so, I'm willing to go 50-50 with you. lol

Cranberry Morning said...

Cat claw on the first one? But I don't see thorny stem on your photo so maybe not. http://www.floridasnature.com/vines_%20gallery3.htm

You know I'm obsessive about finding things! lol

LC said...

I'm no help on identifying, but I did love your captures of the mini-dandelion lookalike.

Betsy Adams said...

Can't give you any weed help... I just know that I hate them in my yard!!!!

I trimmed Azalea bushes and the big Jasmine bush today.. All of our rains are making everything grow like CRAZY....

Glad you didn't have much storm damage.
Hugs,
Betsy

SquirrelQueen said...

No idea on what it is but it sure is pretty. Looks like the white is the seed pod. Maybe the flower when it blooms will give a clue.

I'm glad all in back to normal at your place.

Deb said...

I wonder who decided what was a weed and what is not.... Sometimes weeds are prettier

Dee said...

I like weeds too but nut not to many in one spot like the lawn. We have a weed growing in our flower pot of unknown origin. :)

Dee said...

I have no idea where the word nut came from LOL...I must have sneezed.

Betty Manousos said...

i have no idea, but it is pretty!

you did capture some great shots here. and i just know that it's not that easy for one to photograph weeds perfectly.

you did great job, my wonderful friend!
