Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #57: Weeds

Carly wants photos of weeds for this week's assignment. That shouldn't bee too hard since they grow everywhere.

Take this guy for instance. He found away to grow on the ledge of our building at work. There is no soil there for it, or anything. This is taken with my cellphone, so pardon the quality of the shot. I would have zoomed in a bit if I had my regular camera. You'll have to click on it to get a good view.

I don't know if these clovers are technically weeds, but they grew here without being planted, so I consider them to be weeds. These showed up in a planter at my mom's house and she has decided to water them and keep them. Not bad looking for some wild growth.

That's all I have for you. Fall is approaching, so the weeds aren't as prevalent as they normally are.

Go check out the other photos through the link back to Carly's page.

Hi Mike

Great capture of the brave little weed growing on the ledge, I wonder what it could be? Hmmm... the ones in the pot look so alive and vibrant, they remind me of shamrocks somehow. Very well done as always!

That's quite the weed, growing on the ledge. It just goes to show they will grow just about anywhere. I think wild clover are weeds, and very pretty ones. Nice capture of the ones your mom has.

The weed on the ledge must be the wild equivalent of an air plant!
It certainly has a head for heights.
This photograph made me smile, as I realised nature will always find a way even in our concrete jungle.
