Sunday stills: wildflowers

I did this last minute. Running around the county taking pictures and wasting my gas. Oh well.

The Sikh wedding went really good. Not many horses could have done that. There were 200 people following us singing and dancing and a guy not 5 feet in front of us waling away on a really loud drum. We walked very slowly around this building and it took 20 minutes. It was quite interesting, not to mention about 75$ in tips extra that the family and friends threw in our path. At first I thought it was the big wad of money the groom had that was on Indigo, then he said it was for me because I was the owner of the horse. Pretty cool. More on that plus pictures later.

Anyway on to what this post is about.

These were all on the side of the road in a ditch. Technically anything is a weed. A weed is any plant that isn't in the place you intended it to be. No one planted these, they are all weeds.

I love the pics! I am a sucker for flowers/weeds, I have been taking pictures of them when ever I can. My albums are on Facebook though. I'm glad you've made time to use your awesome camera!

The second one is a Marsh Mallow. The roots were used by pioneers to make an early confection, although I have no idea what resemblance it would have to today's "jet puffed" variety of marshmallows!

Lovely selection!

I think 'weeds' are often prettier than any flowers we can plant in our gardens. :)

I don't know which of your photos is my favorite. I like them all. Stunning close-up photography, too.
Great job!


ps I can't wait to read all about the Sikh wedding. Include pics, too, please!
