Flowers on Friday (okay, Saturday) ... Weeds are Flowers, Too

Anyone who knows me well will not be at all surprised that I have been outside photographing weeds.  I'm constantly amazed at the ability of these plants to thrive in the harshest conditions.

We have had very little rain since early June, and temperatures that regularly approach the upper 90's (and even surpassing 100 degrees some days), making conditions miserable for garden plants and the gardener ... and the weeds grow unabated.

These weeds are taking up valuable space in the garden, smothering and stunting some of my roses, and I want them gone.

Before I kill them, though, I thought I'd capture a few portraits for posterity.

The weather here today is glorious.  I'm going to spend the morning outside taking cuttings.

Have a nice weekend.

  1. Weeds are a pain but can be so beautiful as shown in your photos! Enjoy your day it's another hot one here.

  2. I love queen annes lace...

    we're having another glorious day here too...

    Be nice to the weeds, they are survivors after all.

    Like your mice. :-)

  3. LOL, those are some of the most beautiful weeks I've ever seen, must be the photographer. Nice work.

  4. I think the drought has only made the weed stronger, and more varied.
