They proliferate in dry weather, of which we've had an abundance this year.
Personally, I think they make our dirt roads look very picturesque and beautiful.
Weed, or flower?
It's just a name, a designation.
I call them flowers.
They are like mini-sunflowers, so to me,
they are happy,
waving in the breeze to passers-by,
smiling at everyone.
Maybe even thumbing their noses
(do they have noses??!)
at our county workers.
Backlit by the morning sun.
Beautiful, don't you think?
