Flowers vs. Weeds

When I walk around the dirt roads and paths near here I see lots of blooms.  Are they flowers or are they weeds?  I guess one man’s treasure is another man’s trash, but to me they are all beautiful.  Some are so small you almost miss them if you don’t look closely.  Others are so big you can’t miss them.  Here are a few that I photographed this afternoon.  I’ve tried to name those that I can, but if you know the name, or a different name, please let me know through the comments.

  1. Mark, the fifth one down (after Queen Anne’s Lace) is Woodland Sunflower.
    Great photos. I agree they are not weeds in my eyes. Beautiful.
