    Sweet focus! Looks like a dandelion. When I was little my grandmother would have us dig them up and then she’d cook the dandelions. We’d eat the greens with a bit of vinegar and salt. I believe that they were quite bitter.

    • So…. dandelions are vegetables then, not weeds, right? You should see my beautiful vegetable garden!!! πŸ˜‰
      I don’t think this one is a dandelion, at least not a “regular” one, but it’s probably in the dandelion family.
      Thanks, Becky.

  2. Isn’t a weed technically just a flower that’s somewhere where it’s not wanted ??… Sure do love the water droplets you’ve captured here..

    • Thanks, Brian.
      Then it wouldn’t be a weed at all, because I don’t really mind them, and they make a fun subject for the camera. Besides, we’re already established above that they are vegetable πŸ˜‰

  5. They are weeds only if they are growing where you don’t want them. πŸ™‚

    I think it’s beautiful. πŸ™‚
