Category Archives: weeds

It’s been kind of a difficult last month or so with the loss of my mother-in-law and other more minor challenges and I haven’t found myself doing much photography for fun. And I’m also into the start of a busy wedding photography season so I seldom even pick up a camera for fun unless it’s the cell phone, always in my pocket. You can see what I’ve been doing with that right here.

Yesterday, despite a sore back, I made myself take the big DSLR on a walk around our hill and find something, anything to photograph. There are still some wildflowers around and the weeds are abundant. While we have made a good dent in the knapweed/barnaby and the mullein, other undesirable species are flourishing. Maybe next year we can take on some new ones.

Ok, so salsify is a weed and there sure is a lot of it this year. All those not so pretty yellow flowers are turning into fluffy dandelion-like seeds, ready to be wafted away by the slightest breeze. There is a certain pleasure in observing their geometric elegance before they disperse.
