  1. There is so much truth in the quote 😦 Love the page ♥ The background is gorgeous with so much texture. It’s too hot here right now for me to spend time with the flowers and pulling weeds. When we have a cool down I’ll have lots to do out there. In the meantime I’m designing a new flowerbed cause I just can’t stop myself. 🙂

  3. beautiful pages, and a wonderful quote, Will had such a lot of good sayings in store! And so true that the weeds grow more quickly than anything else, even quicker than I can pull them. Thanks for another great page for AJJ, hugs, Valerie

  4. So true, so true but have you ever noticed that some weeds have beautiful flowers. Never judge a book by its cover! Of course the weeds in the mountains of Western North Caroline took a long time to bloom. I have found weeds blooming along roads that I have transplanted to my garden at home and they turned out great. You really wanted to know that didn’t you Patty!

  6. Two beautiful pieces and great quotes Patty.
    I don’t mind pretty weeds if they encourage butterflies and insects but I’m not very happy with the ones that sting me or choke other plants.
    And I’m still unsure of what makes a plant a plant and a weed a weed … ????

  7. Fabulous pages Patty. True in my neck of the woods for sure. My gardens (especially the veggies) have so many weeds. And I seem to be out there most days doing some pulling. But the flowers are blooming and the veggies are growing-loving this heat and humidity which are back! Oh my! Stay cool. Hugs-Erika

  8. Weeds – if they bloom they can stay in my garden! So many – tickweed, milkweed, blue porterweed, lantana – are all sold as garden plants here. I like them because they reseed themselves – I imagine some of my neighbors are less thrilled. Beautiful pages!

  13. Fabulous pages Patty. Daisies are beautiful in my humble opinion.
    Its a great quote and quite true, but hey I don’t mind seeing wild flowers in my garden.

  14. Weeds are SO misunderstood. I so love these two entries, though. The bard often had great things to say, and his take on weeds was spot on. Loved the daisies. Sometimes we find something we love, hold onto it for ages, then find the perfect place to use it. Seems that’s true of these lovely daisies.

    Hope your Friday is perfect. I hear it’s supposed to heat up even more in your area this weekend.

  16. Both of these are bubbling over with beauty. The way you composed the first one is so nice. I just love it. You have to be pleased. Aren’t you glad you never threw out those old daisies? The white digital piece makes me think of a camellia. It is lovey. Both of your pieces are extra nice this week; Happy Weekend. genie

  20. Love that quote about weeds being nature’s graffiti -what fun! So many plants that are considered as weeds have the most gorgeous flowers so how can they be the dreaded ‘weeds’.
