My husband took one of my photos and altered it somehow in Photoshop.  I thought it looked rather like a painting.  But... 

I kind of like my photo of the weeds just the way they really looked.  I need to find out the name of these plants because I've always thought they were beautiful once the got to this stage.  So delicate looking...


  1. Lovely photo as they sway on a breeze, Victoria.
    And they are very delicate looking.
    We call them "wild oats" or, common wild oats. Their botanical name is Avena fatua.
    They're actually a grass, and are considered a major weed over here, especially in agricultural areas, as they're highly competitive with crops and easily develop resistance to herbicides.
    But, they are pretty.

    Have you seen the "Fairy's Fishing Rod" plant? Botanical name Dierama pulcherrimum.
    Another grass-perennial with varieties of different colours.
    I used to have them in my old cottage garden. Such lovely plants.
    The bell like flowers on long slender arching canes would bob in the wind. A true delight.

    You may have them already.

  2. Laura, I'll tell my husband you liked his Photoshopping.

    Vicki, I had a feeling you might know what they are, thank you! I'm going to look up the other ones you mentioned because I don't know if I've seen it or not.

  3. Beautiful weeds -- both au natural and photoshopped!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
