Got weeds?

Baby's Breath growing wild
along a wire fence...




"No matter how chaotic life is,
wildflowers will still spring up in the middle of nowhere,
and weeds will still find their way to even the most manicured lawn."

Both of these images are gorgeous. Love the juxtaposition of barbed wire and baby's breath ... beautiful, Cat.

How lovely to see this in the wild. I have joined a photo a day online club - you might find it fun too. I use my pics for the blog as well. 365 project DOT org. Check it out.

I have some that comes back every year -- but it's in an old wash tub. Maybe I need to spread the seeds elsewhere? Lovely shots.

Terri said...

Pretty shots- I just don't understand why some of our prettiest flowers are called weeds!

Mary said...

True! And this is beautiful. Wonderful photos, Catherine!

Barbara said...

We've had some growing wild here, too. It makes the whole roadside a beautiful flower arrangement! Your photos are lovely! Hope you have a great week!

Dearest Catherine,
Wow, did you cut some and add a rose?
They are lovely and what a treasure trove... for free.
Hugs,

Very pretty! I didn't realize baby's breath grew wild. I need to pay more attention to wildflowers!

Olá minha querida,

Esse pensamento resume tudo que a fotografia mostra.
A natureza tem uma força gigante.

A imagem é maravilhosa!
Beijos e ótima semana!

So pretty.... It just seems to sparkle... Aren't wildflowers just gorgeous? We love to drive out in the country in summer and check out all of the colors.

Hugs,

Katy Noelle said...

Well! THAT's a deep quote! =) But, oh, how beautiful!!! I've never seen wild baby's breath! Even more, I love your soft and misty images of them! =) Thinking of you!!

Lin said...

I like the contrast of the soft baby's breath and the harshness of the wire. That is really a cool photo.

My favorite plants are those that self-seed wherever they darn please. I always leave them in my yard and gardens.

Eileen said...

Gorgeous photos!

My mom had a large baby's breath plant on the farm...but not that big.
It's absolutely lovely.

"Breathtaking" :)

Laurie said...

I love baby's breath, but have never seen it growing in the wild. It's so dainty and romantic in a bouquet. I totally agree with the quote, in fact I think of weeds as flowers too.

Giancarlo said...

Pantherka said...

But it looks beautiful.

Maggie from Stillness at Cherith said...

Hot Rocks said...

So pretty Catherine. I used to grow baby breath in the city, but I think out here in the country the deer would find it an appetizing snack!

Sarah Kim said...

"Breath"-taking photo! I've been having a bit of a wildflower fetish this year. Something about "wild" has always captured my heart.
