a lovely weed

I saw this growing along the side of the road on our
way out to Hottest Sparrow yesterday.

I admit I have a bit of a problem.
I love flowers to the point of obsession.
So as we are driving along I see these lovely beauties and I say
to Bob..
"oh honey stop I want to get some of those to plant in my garden"
"but they are weeds"
"no they aren't.. they are wildflowers"
"i think they'd be invasive"

he stopped!!

Bob is a good man that way.

It is amazing a difference a day can make though
because today I went out and looked at them
and thought...
I remember these.
I planted some last spring (red flowers though) and the flowers
lasted a couple of weeks and then the plants are
lanky and ugly and invasive.

ahhh Bob was right!
but I don't mind.
I still got a lovely photo out of those beautiful yellow weeds/wildflowers.
they added some color to our otherwise grey day.

they are very pretty, don't you agree?
