May 15

These little violets grow wild in the wooded area next to our house. We find them in our lawn at times too. I guess they are technically a weed, but aren't they pretty?

Why is it that the peskiest weeds can bare the most beautiful flowers? It’s always a dilemma for me; do I pull them out or let them bloom?!?

I think that sometimes the "weeds" have the prettiest flowers!

I always wonder who was it that named them weeds? The cultivated blossoms we now have that we pay large prices for were one day what could be classified as weeds. This flower simply has not had someone come along, realize its beauty and then take it to a lab to work on its genes to get a lovely garden plant out of it. :D

I like the delicate little plants as well. God made them all, and we should appreciate them all.
