Little Treasures Underfoot

One day not long ago, I was strolling through my dad's yard and noticed some little treasures underfoot. Now many people consider these treasures weeds, but not me. I'm not the type of person who wants a perfectly manicured lawn (good thing I have no close neighbors). I have friends who live in neighborhoods with people who leave letters telling you when to mow, pressure wash, paint, etc. I can't imagine that. I think the lawn has much more character when these little treasures appear.



Henbit (Often confused with Purple Deadnettle)



Am I alone in my opinion?

i have often noted that some weeds have
as pretty flowers as perennials. what makes
one a weed, and another a flower?

clovers are so soft to walk on, and look for
four leafed ones!
