That almost looks like a blue bonnet.
It's pretty.

Got two more 'weed' pics on file ... might as well make it 'Weed Thursday'

This one's actually got a name -  and a pretty one at that. It's called Queen Ann's Lace - looks like a doillie

Last weed from the garden - Actually this is some kinda ground cover. Hadn't noticed it in the back yard before - it covers a little more'n a square foot in a mostly shady area (and of course, this is an extreme close-up)

Don't know if there's anything new to photograph out there, but I've only got 2 o 3 pics left in reserve ... like this one, a giant (well at the time we gor em, we had never had tall lilies like that) pale yellow spotted lilies (they're a little like turks caps in that they produce pods along the stem and face downwards and tjhe petals do curve back some.) Photo was taken 3 days ago.
