Fence Festooned with Finery


This week I found our front gate festooned with finery... Yes, it IS a WEED... and I love it. Baby was at the gate barking, I walked up to shut her up, and there it was, covered in tiny little yellow flowers.


I ran walked fast for the camera and came back and said to Bob
"Come see this amazing weed" his reply
"It is one of those weeds that stinks and takes over"


MadSnapper replies.. "do NOT touch that weed until I tell you to. 
and I spent 3 days SNAPPING..




Don't fret.... there is MORE TO COME... this weed has something I have never seen before, it has its very own ORNAMENTS

...to be continued.

I love yellow and this is a pretty flower. I wish I could wear yellow but it doesn't look very good on me.
Hugs Madi and Mom

I LOVE the weed....er FLOWER, and the last picture is stunning!!! I love the way it was folded up, and in the fourth picture it looks like a seashell! I hope you can find out what it is...it is a vine of some kind.

I love the shape of the leaves. I'm imagining Bob skulking nearby--waiting for you to finish your "snapping" so he can do some "snipping"!!

Best,
Bonnie

Our yard is so dry and brown...I would even take a green weed. ;)

That last picture - is it the same flower/weed in the earlier picture? It was kind of pretty. sandie

Even the most undesirable, can produce beautiful fruit. (Isn't that deep?)

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Did snipping follow snapping, Sandra. The flower reminded me of some sort of primrose, which would open in sunlight and die by night. If yours survives cutting, maybe you can learn it's name.

it is a pretty thing!

Linda said...

I know you love yellow flowers so whatever this one is I'm sure it's welcome in your yard. That last photo is so pretty with the textured petals with frilly edges. It looks almost unreal like one of those silk flowers that's worn on a lapel.

One person's weed is another's flower.

Enjoy.

That first comment cracked me up! LOL! Ornaments? I can't imagine what we'll see next!

Susannah said...

ooooooo.....gorgeous! Isn't it amazing what we get from some weeds?

I'm always baffled by weeds. Some of them are really lovely, so who labelled them weeds?
I like the gate weed, its really pretty.

The flowers are beautiful. Why is it that weeds have such pretty flowers and such bad habits?

Rose said...

I like it when weeds are this beautiful! I really like its leaves, even.

Ruth Kelly said...

Well, it is certainly a lot prettier than a dandelion.

Jan Newman said...

I like this weed. Some of the prettiest flowers I've seen were weeds, including spiderwort, which we encouraged to grow in our back yard. It doesn't anymore, though. :(

Deb said...

I don't know who decided which ones would be labeled weeds...such pretty yellow flowers...

Betsy Adams said...

For a weed, it is gorgeous... I love yellow --and see alot of yellow in the Fall.. Hope you get enough photos before Bob tears it all down!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

George said...

I'm usually not a fan of weeds, but I will admit that you got some great pictures of the yellow flowers. I can hardly wait to see what you have planned for your next post.

SquirrelQueen said...

For a weed this sure is pretty, of course weeds usually are. That yellow flower is too beautiful to be on a weed however. Can't wait to see the ornaments.

SweetMarie said...

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

Looks like a form of morning glory?

Dee said...

LC said...

The blossoms in early stage are unusual, too.

Betty Manousos said...
