Header Competition # 43 "Weed or Flower?"

The header theme this week by Lanny and is ""Weed or flower". I chose this in honor of Lanny joining the group. She is always working in the dirt with neat garden beds. She may find this week there are some other gardeners around.  MacDarlaGail's Man,  Lanny and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. Gail's Man is off acting tonight, so he is not posting this week.

Martha and Tom are on a break. Come back as soon as you are able my friends.

I knew exactly what I was going to post this week. After a trip to Lake Hodgson for fishing and photography here is my offering. So is this a weed or a flower?
It has a regal name and a pretty flower. It is Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus Carota), sometimes called Wild Carrot. It has a neat flower.
You can fancy up the photo.
But the shot I liked best is in the header.

See the other neat post above.

Hi Tom... I was wondering who it was that came up with the definition of a "weed" ... Some of the most beautiful flowers are what some might consider a weed... Whatever it is, you got some nice shots of it!
My vote says it is what it is...
A flower... I'm no botanist, but I'm sure that's what you call something growing on the end of a stem of a plant. LOL :)

Perfect one, Tom, for your header theme. I love Queen Anne's Lace --and it grows wild everywhere up here. I never considered it a weed since it is used for wedding flowers, etc... BUT--I guess it IS a weed.... It's a pretty one though.

Gaelyn said...

A flowering weed to some, yet delicate and fine like lace to others. Nice!
