Misplaced Flowers

Some people say a weed is just a misplaced flower.

If you just care to look closely and learn more about these unloved plants, you might appreciate their beauty and virtues.

Inconspicuous and easily overlooked ...

Weeds are flowers too,

once you get to know,

them.

  9. Beautiful photos! My father had a range management degree and he always said "green is good" for our yard. He could spot all sorts of plants in what I always thought looked the same.

  16. There are those of us who greatly prefer the wildness of nature to manicured lawn and gardens. Count me among them. Weeds can be my friends too!

  17. Dearest Veronica,
    Excellent photos!
    We have discovered that the weeds of one country are the treasured plants of another country! That we learned while living and working in Indonesia for three years...

  18. A brilliant post. Agree, agree, agree. And weeds are perhaps just native plants, and these are the plants we need in our lives.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Some weeds truly are as lovely as any garden flower!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Weeds are plants not intentionally being grown, but they're typical of the place. Great post, Veronica!

    Glad to hear you've planned to go to Italy when the epidemic will to an end. You are welcome! The town where I live is located close to Rome ... let me know about your trip ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

    All the best,

    Giorgio

  22. They are all lovely. I never heard of billy Goat weed! To me, there are no weeds, only wildflowers. If weeds were hard to grow, everyine would want them!

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's really hard to spot them from afar... Great spotting and shots...

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would be happy to have these in my garden. My weeds are the horrible kind!

  33. Oh, I loved seeing the weeds that grow in your area. That Billy Goat weed is so unusual and pretty. And I really like the quote, and will write that one down.

    Have a beautiful weekend. I enjoy reading your blog posts. : )

  34. What a beautiful quote! My boys think all weeds are flowers too, I get a lot they pick for me on their walks, it's so sweet. I happily display them in a cup of water like proper flowers! :)

    Hope you have a good weekend ahead of you! Fun one here, a birthday party to go to each day!

  36. Dear Veronica,
    that's a good definition of weed.
    I always say that it depends on WHERE it grows: Meadow grass, for example, is welcome in the meadow, but not in the flower or vegetable patch.
    And some plants are very fond of spreading. You plant five of them - and suddenly you have hundreds that displace all other flowers.
    I always try to accept a mix of desirable and "wild" plants in my garden, but sometimes I have to intervene ;-)
    Happy Weekend and all the best

  37. There are certainly some beautiful weeds - and though beautiful, they can overtake a garden and crowd out native species. Bindweed comes to mind. There are weeds I don't pull out, especially those that flower early in the year and offer food to birds and insect. Later, I can just discard the seedheads if I want to. I think there are a lot of beautiful weeds, but also some that can become a real pest.

  38. Love this post - beautiful flowers ..I've been out all summer finding wildflowers and enjoying it so much! I agree weeds are definitely flowers ...and sometimes more beautiful than the ones we plant.

  42. I'm reading quite a few blogs and articles lately about how people are letting "wildflowers" take over their lawns because it is so much better for butterflies and the environment than grassy lawns. I really like that idea.

    ReplyDelete
  43. That's a nice way of putting it.

    ReplyDelete
  44. That's a great way to look at it. Beautiful flowers!

  46. Yes, some have really very pretty flowers! Those curly leaves in your 4th pic look like Brazilian spinach, very nice vegetable.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I agree. I leave pretty weeds to grow. Some are also prettier than garden flowers.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Some weeds are more beautiful than flowers and others are just truly ugly weeds.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Beautiful flowers. There are many weeds that I view as flowers. Judgement indeed.

  52. There are lots of little 'flowers' that I like but, if they overtake my garden, they have to be kept small.
