Beautiful flowers, I like the way you present them.


These are lovely, Sallie, and I would let them grow with wild abandon in my yard. Looks like lilies and some sort of field daisies.


They are very pretty. Weeds are plants growing in the wrong place.

I always thought that weeds were not pretty, but find that when I have less time to get rid of them, they are really very pretty, well some of them. I am just so drained all of the time and the weeds prevail longer now;')~

Weed or flower? Its all a state of mind I think!

My weekend was great - never expected to see either whales or albatross - stayed in a great house, had friends round for dinner and did a few good (but short!) walks!

Dearest Sallie,
So sorry for my absence for your wonderful posts, my dear friend.
Wow, wonderful and beautiful pictures, aren't they♡♡♡ Our Emperor who is a botanist once said 'there is no plant called weed' when he was explained a plant is a weed. I clearly remember the scene from TV even if it was a long time ago♬♬♬
I am happy to read you had some rain. I hope our important(for crops and reservoir)rainy season will be a normal one.

PS> Thank you very much for your sweet coment for me. I'm crossing my fingers that the new medication works for him so that he won't has to be hospitalized.

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*


Your photos are really colorful. In my old age, I have decided that it's only a weed if I don't like where it's growing :)


Delightfully pretty and refreshing flowers for the day Sallie, I love the macro shots! Absolutely gorgeous!


nein Sallie, für mich sind es wunderschöne Wildblumen

Beautiful flowers, Sallie. Cherish them - they are all a gift. And your photography is lovely.


Beautiful macro pics...


If they're weeds I want a whole yard full!
Lovely Sallie!

I like patches of wild flowers.


They're beautiful—and flowers to me!

Have a wonderful week. ☺


Sometimes weeds do have very beautiful flowers, there are some examples where I live. But if you don't take care of them they'll take over the entire yard!


Amazing pictures. The flowers are gorgeous, I especially like the last one.


Lovely flowers - no matter what you call them.


I don't always know which is which, but I do know pretty when I see it. These are pretty! Very nice photos Sallie...

Sharon Wagner

That is for sure. They look magical close up. Beautiful shots.


I never think of any flower as a weed. These are exactly why. So pretty, Sallie. Hope you have a great week!


I think weeds are wildflowers that get in the way. These are definitely not weeds!


Beautiful and colorful wild flowers.

So pretty, a field of wildflowers. But in the lawn just as nice. Have a great week.


Those are beautiful flowers. I definitely wouldn't pull them up and I have some of them myself.


Beautiful flowers Sallie... so lovely to see xx

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I find them all pretty. I'd love to know what the flowers are in the last poto.


They're beautiful!


a weed is just a plant in the wrong place. If you're happy with the flowers in your garden it's a wildflower garden! They certainly look lovely!


Once again you have proven that beauty is in the eye (and the camera) of the beholder! And what is a weed depends on the person defining the term.

We have these pink/purple flowers covering the fields up this way. I don't know (and don't care) what they are called because they sure are beautiful and add a lot to the landscape. In Texas we had whole counties full of bluebells in the spring.

Enjoy the bounty of Mother Nature in whatever form it shows up! :)


I agree with you, these wildflowers but look beautiful anywhere. Gorgeous shots, thanks so much for sharing them with Today's Flowers :)

Wonderfol flowers! The soft effect on the blossom is beautiful!


and they are so beautiful !!


I love those flowers! It is beautiful.

Lady Fi

Lovely wildflowers! (Not weeds!)


Gorgeous flower photos! Beautiful soft effects!


I think it all depends on how you look at it, these are much too beautiful to be weeds. The one in the lower right hand corner is a gaillardia, or blanket flower. It grows wild some places but here it is the center of attention in my garden.

exquisite Sallie... love the soft effects:-)


IF It has a flower its not a weed...I enjoy seeing all the wild flowers on the sides of the road as I drive to work and back, Fall is best time for wildflowers here.


No Dandelions (my nemesis) so I'd just enjoy!


So lovely! I thin of weeds as plants growing where you don't want them...I would want these!


Pretty flower shots.


These look like flowers we try to grow here. What are the fragile pink ones...delightful!


Karen, Pixel Posts

In my opinion they are all flowers, and beautiful ones at that! )These would make great "note cards" for Vee's note card party coming up the 3rd wednesday in June)

yes, wild flowers do look lovely! Mercia Marina encourages wild plants, animals and and insects. The results are glorious.

  Happy weekend to you!


I love these flowers, surely they are not weeds. Lovely images, Sallie!


Beautiful photographs, I love such pictures:) Greetings


i love weeds as much as wildflowers and these are definitely flowers to me. :)

Gorgeous flowers, wild or not.
