QUEEN ANN'S LACE, 5X7, OIL, SOLD

I love wildflowers.  I don't know why some people call them weeds, just because they grow where they want and not always where YOU want them.  I would much rather see a sampling of pretty little flowers scattered about instead of miles of manicured green grass.

I always try to take at least one long walk with my camera when I am in North Carolina, you never know what you will find.  Last time, I found these pretty little flowers next to the road.

Lovely one, Carol. We like weeds too. My husband keeps the grass cut but I tell him not to get fussy with trimming and all because this is a "country lawn." We have wildflowers, pine needles, you name it and I think it's beautiful. You never know what's going to pop up from year to year.

This is lovely!

Working in a greenhouse years ago, I learned this important plant distinction. There are only two types of plants: Those that grow too well (weeds) and those that don't grow well enough (perennials that you bought at the greenhouse). Sometimes these plants could be both, depending on whose yard they were in!
