SUNDAY STILLS CHALLENGE - WEEDS AND GRASSES

(sort of)




 The weed below is the worst thing to hit this area....EVER!  It is sticky, smothers everything and spreads like crazy.  This year it has taken over our gardens and is over 3 feet high.  Getting rid of it is quite a challenge.  Don't know the name of it and hope it's nowhere near you.

We have those sticky weeds, too!
They are a terrible pain with our setter boy's long feathering!

Your "simple" approach turned out spectacular. The first photo really caught my eye!

Great shots! And I love your header. That is really a wonderful photo. I think the weed might be "bed straws", and used to be used to stuff homemade mattresses back in the early days

Nice shots. Everything looks so lush and green after all of your rain. The weeds must be very happy!

Don't know your weed... don't want to know it!

I think we have that last weed here too, it's downright ugly!

Oh yeah, that sticky weed, what IS that?! I love the dense green of these pics.

Like your first shot, very green photos. Nice job.

I don't know the name of the weed. It hasn't made its way to France yet.
I love your header photo. That jay seems to have something to say.
Happy French Mother's Day

We have that same 'weed' here too. I mistakingly thought it was a new plant I'd set out, and only found out after it spread everywhere that it wasn't. If I find out what it is, I'll certainly let you know.

Why is everything so green? Couldn't you find any 'cool beans'? lol

oh, yes, that weed is sticky. I only see it on dead trees, and it is just like a vine! I can't imagine 3' tall! I love all your closeups, especially the 3rd one!

Don't know about your weed, but it wouldn't surprise me if we have it on our farm. Everything grows here!

We have that weed too, but the one I really hate is a round(ish) leaf, ground creeping, all over the gardens and now spreading out into the yard.

I love the varied textures in your photos. Just gorgeous!
