Pretty Weeds

Ive said it before, but Ill say it again. I have pretty weeds. Dont believe me? Well, look for yourself. 

Yes, I know they are Daisies and Daisies are not really weeds, but these particular daisies are not your fancy Shasta or any other hybrid variety. Heck no! These are your plain, ordinary vulgaris aka wild daisies which find their way into any and all garden spotseven those which arent garden spot at all! 

They can usually be found where they are least wanted. These are growing in the cracks in the asphalt of the driveway. It doesnt matter how many times I yank my wild daisies out by the bunches, roots and all, they keep coming back pretty as you please. Tenacious, I tell ya! But a pretty weed nonetheless.


  1. Congrats! You have a beautiful blog and I enjoy reading your posts. Your kitty picture is adorable.

  2. Weeds are only called 'weeds' because someone doesn't want them where they are; they have been 'sidelined' by 'flower growers' that insist their 'tame' flowers are the 'only' flowers we should have--so they can make MONEY.
    The so-called 'weeds' are beautiful; tenacious daisies, lawn-captivating-full-of-sunshine dandelions and even tall, regal purple Russian and Canadian thistles have beautiful, large flowers on them. They usually grow in POOR soil, and they grow incredibly deep tap roots, doing their best to repair the soil for us.
    Yes, Glory, you have pretty weeds. WE have lots of them too, but around here they are known as 'wild flowers'. ON the quad trails in our wild forest we have Jacks-in-the-pulpet, elegant white Nodding Trilliums, violets that are yellow, blue, purple and white; marsh marigolds,(also called 'cowslips) and all kinds of other miscellaneous flowers unidentifed--but we don't call any of them weeds either.
    Nature is beautiful, and so are her wild flowers, wherever they happen to be. I could not agree with you more--your 'weeds' are beautiful! ":)

  3. Hmm, I should just call them wild flowers, then.


Whacha think?
