  1. I would love to figure that out at some point myself.

  2. Either:
    There are no weeds; only flowers we don't like.

    Or:
    There are no flowers, only favored weeds.

    1. Spoken like a poet. My poetry book is called, "Weeds".

  3. Sometimes the only flowers in my garden are the weeds! Not at the moment, luckily, I have some actual flowers out at the moment. :)

  5. 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 ;)

  7. 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! :-)

  8. sometimes the weeds are prettier than the flowers.... and they are so much easier to maintain!

    1. I don't think there is a difference to God. People made the distinction.

  9. weren't all plants 'weeds' before they were cultivated and hybridized?

  10. 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.

  11. Sometimes I can't tell one from the other. But there is beauty to be found where you least expect it sometimes.

    Happy Saturday!

  14. Nice! I try to cultivate some of each. Well of course, with the weeds one does not have to try so hard.

  20. 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.

    1. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. If we didn't have 'weeds' in our lives, how could we ever appreciate the flowers. Happy 6WS.

  23. 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.
