Friday's Flowers: Roadside Attractions

“What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have never been discovered.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is an old fashioned country road near us that I have been walking along in the mornings. It is quiet and well endowed with fields of grasses and various animals. As I walked, I noticed a plethora of flora along the side of the road. Mostly "weeds". I thought of the above quote as I walked, and decided to come back one evening with camera in hand and try to capture the "virtues" of this roadside garden.

Happy Friday everyone! Have a great weekend!
