Beautiful, I love the shades and the textures in this one, it has a wonderful abstract feel to it. It just wouldn't work in colour.

Aren't weeds just misunderstood flowers?

Looks like a graffit draw! It's beautiful!!! I love it.
Great picture.

Who knew that weeds had their own beauty? Okay, I admit that I have seen some that are kind of pretty, but I like how they are portrayed in your photo.

Hello Gary - I agree. There would be no interest in this picture if it were in colour because, then, it would simply look like . . . a load of old weeds! As it is . . . I too love it!

Lucy

P.S. Hardly anyone could look less like a hippy than you in your current photo!

Hello Janet.

I agree with you too. I'm very struck on weeds. I even like little patches of rough grass. There are some with prickles sticking out of lumps on their leaves which I find quite disgusting and I don't like groundsel either but apart from them . . .

This particular patch would grace any garden. When the flowers were flowering they were purple (the bugloss) and yellow (ragwort).

Hello Robert.

This photo reminds me of the wallpaper edges and plaster freezes Victorians favoured.

By the way . . . seeing the Panfield bench on your blog . . . I spent my teenage years in White Notley, went to school in Colchester and still have family in Braintree and Clacton.

Small world.

Hello Noelle

I suppose these weeds are our small-scale and undramatic equivalents of your Arizona cactuses - and no-one would call them weeds! (Is it alright to call them cactuses nowadays or are they still Cacti?)

Perhaps our thistles are Teddy Cholas in disguise!

As you say Lucy, reminds me of a frieze. A world in itself.

This shot works so well in b&w, it has such wonderful texture. :)
