June Photo Challenge: Weeds

Time for the June Photo Challenge. This months theme is Weeds. Most of us should have weeds around somewhere. I do. Have fun.

Since weeds aren't a scientific distinction, more of a cultural one - plants that grow (perhaps a little too) well without being planted - I'll go with this one.

EDIT: Changed my entry.

There is a reason I have a high powered weed eater.


Don’t smoke this weed.

I need to find some weeds soon ... in the middle of winter, in a well-kept garden.

I've ripped up my of my grass and heavily mulched the entire yard and the bulk of my plants are actually weeds. If you allow them to grow and observe them, you'll find that they are actually very important for the environment.

I'm sorry, I guess I focused on the weeds part of this thread, not the photo challenge. I'm not interested in the challenge, just weeds

No idea what these are, but I'm guessing they're a weed? They grow where a natural spring flows into a really damp spot in a cemetery nearby.
