From fungus to flowers

While fungus can be pretty cool and fascinating it's not always real pretty to look at. Today wild, weed or otherwise I bring you flowers

This one was planted by the birds.


This is on a vine that is growing through my forsythia.


This is growing on another vine that has taken over a flower bed in the front of my house. It's choked out just about everything in there.


This isn't a weed and because of the one above I have very little of this left. I can never remember the name of it though.

Go to Google Images and look for Deadly Nightshade, also known as Belladonna. This is what your second plant is. I know because it's in our backyard. The internet has the exact same flower as yours. It is, of course, poison.

We have lots of strange weeds in our gardens too Ann...but I have no clue as to what any of them are called! I am really bad with names...

Lots of wild flowers and weeds are really quite pretty too. I have a bunch in my yard. Those flowers in your yard are pretty too. Have a great day Ann.

be they weeds or be they not,
I love just what you've got... the pretty purple is my favorite photo because of the color and bokeh background.

So pretty! Google image search wasn't helpful with the first one, Ginny identified the second one (Eek!), the third one looks to be a morning glory and the last one, pretty as it is, is a weed called 'yarrow" If memory serves me right, they smell kinda funny.

It's fun to explore what is growing around your home. If we just take the time we'll find lots of pretty flowers.

Have a fabulous day, Ann. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

Since everyone's talking about Google searches, I'll give it a try. Sometimes if you just describe what your flower looks like then google will give you a few options. That might be enough to get your flower identified if you want to go that far.

I can never remember the names of flowers anymore. As long as they are pretty, I don't care what they are called! Hahaha!
