Weeds are Flowers too...

"Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them."
A.A. Milne

I'm not sure what this brush's native to the area around Mono Lake...
It was a bit windy that day...and rather hard to get it to sit still!!!

For those of you who shoot with a Nikon DSLR...
that I'd like to sell...
This was part of my Christmas gift, but I already have an electronic flash so 
I don't need this one...
It sells on for $255...
I'd like to sell mine for $150...
Please shoot me an email if you think you might be interested...


  1. Seems like every time I've been to Mono Lake it's been windy, but then again, it's quite an expanse of land/water. I like the pale prairie-like colors here.

  2. I love the colors in this photo. Stunning!

    The close up cherry blossoms in my photo? I'm totally holding the branch still...we've got to find a way to win against the wind! hehe.

  4. Dear Chieftess....

    Talk about a muddle! =/ This comment belongs here.... heh, heh - oops! =( =]:

    I am just one unorganized gal! ;) I have your blog in my blog roll at the bottom of my blog but I'm just not getting around to visit that way. I'm so sorry! So, that explains why I'm, now, suddenly, a follower. Absolute silliness - that's what it is! =]

    and, Happy Easter to you and thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your kind encouragements! I wonder if you realize how much they mean... =]

    but, now, I have to toodle off. I wound up staying home from church and from the dinner going on at Grandma's house, next door, because of a sick little guy. But, he just got up - got dressed - announced he was going up to Grandma's and, silly me, I'm sitting here at home alone. ooops! =]

    and, you know dem weeds! =] Very pretty and softly neutral image!


  5. The wind seems to pick up in the afternoon Bibi...which happens to be the time I'm most likely to be by there!!! I think in the mornings it tends to be of these days...

    Thank you Kaori!!! I had to laugh about you holding the cherry blossoms still!!!

  8. so true!

    thanks for dropping by at

  9. Yes, they are :) A very beautiful photo!

  10. thanks for visiting Birgitta!!! You always have such lovely photos!!!

  11. I don't want to know weeds, lol !
    But I like your picture !

  12. Gattina...These would be weeds in our gardens...but are wildflowers/native plants surrounding Mono Lake!!!

  13. Of course weeds are flowers.....that's about all the I can grow in my beds. I wish I did have a Nikon sometimes.

  14. Some weeds (I like to call them wild flowers) are very pretty!!!
    This is a lovely picture - don't know what it is though.

    I have a photo of Wayne "in action"

    IMHO: keep your 2nd flash and get some radio flash triggers to make a portable 2 flash systems. I purchased some Yonghnuo ones for a very reasonable price. You can never have too many flashes, think of it as a spare in case your main one quits.

  16. Weeds are flowers too! And that can be metaphor too!

  17. Lovely bokeh and selective focus!
    What a great quote to compliment your image.

  18. I hear your pain Linda!!! But I have to say...that photo of the calf suckling on mama...FABULOUS!!!
    Do check out Linda at

    Thanks Ellie!!! I agree!!! And since this one qualifies as a native plant, and isn't growing in my garden...I love it!!!

    Thanks Bobskoot!!! I checked out Wayne in action...great shots!!! As for your idea about the flash...I hadn't thought of that...great idea...I may do that!

    Definitely Margaret!!!

    Thank you Carletta!!! I've been working on the bokeh effect...glad it worked here!!!

  19. I love the soft shades in the photo--and love the quote! oh, so true. :)
