Weeds are flowers too...

I took a ride to another town near here where I often stop to take pictures of the pond -- Quaboag Pond.  Because I am doing my 365 Project on Flickr, I felt the need for a change of scenery today.  While I was wandering around there, I came across this pinkish, purple plant growing between the rocks of the jetty.  It just grows there on its own, so I guess it would be considered  a weed.  But isn't it jaunty and beautiful?  I took a few pictures  just to get to know it a little better.



Today I am linking up with A Rural Journal's Tuesday Muse.

And thank you, Nancy! I used your Coffee Break texture when I processed this photo.

Weeds are plants only called weeds by people who think they're weeds:)

Very pretty, in fact so pretty is must be a "wildflower" and not a weed. :))

Kelly said...

I totally agree!! Great image.

Betty Luckhurst said...

Such a pretty little flower--and so strong to grow among the rocks. Since I started gardening a few years ago, I have decided that it's a weed only if it's growing someplace I don't want it!

i like weeds better than flowers, but i think all flowers are weeds and weeds are flowers... these are beautiful. to get your pugs eye view, you will have to lay on the ground OR just sit the camera on the ground and snap blind. been there done that one

Beautiful! And I agree that weeds are flowers too, just as pretty, just as special.

That weed is pretty - but I am so allergic to weeds. Sandie

What a beautiful picture. My son just walked behind me and commented how nicely it was edited (when you catch the positive attention of a teenager, you know you are doing something right).

Nice photo, and I love the quote too.

MEcoy said...

well i never seen weeds so i never thought it was some sort of flowers

Nancy said...

I believe that might be purple loose strife which is a noxious weed here -- but it is so pretty!

Rose said...

Either it is beautiful, or the way you photographed it is!
