I would love to figure that out at some point myself.
It's all about perception.
Either:There are no weeds; only flowers we don't like.Or:There are no flowers, only favored weeds.
Spoken like a poet. My poetry book is called, "Weeds".
Sometimes the only flowers in my garden are the weeds! Not at the moment, luckily, I have some actual flowers out at the moment. :)
To each their purpose though.
My 6 words for today.I am longing for cooler temperatures.
You & me, both!
isn't funny how most of the weeds have such lovely, sunny yellow flowers? sometimes I hate to pull them. and my kids will most certainly pick the dandelion over the buttercup when bringing me flowers ;)
Gotta' love them kids! And dandelions too.
So useful being married to a garden designer!
Bill is unofficially. He has a very green thumb.
Looking at life thru the eyes of a child... it's a flower if it is bright and makes us smile! The only weeds I truly detest are those darn stickers that cling to the soles of our shoes, our jeans, our cats, and my fingers as I work to remove them! :-)
Burrs! And Nettles...I don't like Nettles, either.
sometimes the weeds are prettier than the flowers.... and they are so much easier to maintain!
I don't think there is a difference to God. People made the distinction.
weren't all plants 'weeds' before they were cultivated and hybridized?
Thank you. I believe so...
Lovely, Ann ~~ Here in Texas we call flowering weeds by the name, "Wild Flowers." As in many of the states, our State Flower is a wild flower, the Blue Bell. Same for my birth state, Nebraska, with the Golden Rod...
Jim, I love it! Thank you!
Sometimes I can't tell one from the other. But there is beauty to be found where you least expect it sometimes.Happy Saturday!Linda @ Truthful Tidbits
Exactly! I hope to reflect this with my book.
it's funny but sometimes I like my weeds more than the flowers...we have some awesome stuff growing around here!
I couldn't agree more. I love both, and respect their place.
some weeds I like some flowers I don't: beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Cheers!
Nice! I try to cultivate some of each. Well of course, with the weeds one does not have to try so hard.
I know...they are both often lovely!
They are just wild flowers.
seems we can't always have one without the other.happy saturday :]
I think it is balance.
I seem to have more understanding with weeds.
It is all about perception, Grasshopper.
beautiful... says so much
Thanks Hilary...glad you came by!
Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. We do not live too far apart, as I live near Kankakee.
We are on the IL/WI border, literally a couple of blocks inside IL.
With you on that one!! :) My six words, 'I miss my old bloggin friends!' So, here I am...coming to say hi!! :)
Tami, you are special!
Dear McGuffyAnn, what wise words your six are--if i could distinguish between the weeks in my mind and the flowers there'd be so much more peace within--and probably without. Peace.
Dee, my poetry book is "Weeds". They are finalizing the layout this week! Both books should be out this fall. I had to go without pictures, but they are not necessary to the poems. If this goes okay, I have another book of poetry...and more...I also am working on a book of my rescued critters.Thanks! Hugs.
Oh I have the very same flowers and weeds in my garden. I think the weeds add color just as the flowers do and so I welcome mine! thanks for your visit this morning and I hope you'll come again.
To everything its purpose. Glad you are here!
If we didn't have 'weeds' in our lives, how could we ever appreciate the flowers. Happy 6WS.
Yes! Exactly! Thanks for stopping by!
Sometimes I think the weeds are even prettier than the "real" flowers. Either way, bright color blooms usually make me happy, no matter what they're called.
Thanks Cheri, we need as much beauty as possible. :)
What a poetic six words, involving beautiful photos! ~Xiomara, visiting from Equis Place
Thanks! And nice having you come by! Hugs.
Those are hard to tell. Sometime's the weeds look better than the flowers... : )
Joseph, I agree wholeheartedly.
