Today at my Grandma’s house, I saw these weeds:

This unknown weed has dandelion-like flowers, but the plant stands upright

[Added Jan. 23, 2006] This is Erodium cicutarium (Red-stemmed Filaree). Thanks to mschmidt62 on flickr for the ID. Also in the photo is a tiny Anagallis arvensis (Scarlet Pimpernel).

I also saw this weed a few days ago on Broadway Street (San Francisco). I really like the texture on its leaves. Anyone know what this is?

  • I don’t know what the second one is, but I’ve seen it here before. I think it came in with some potting soil. It is a lovely looking weed.

    • It’s weird that I’m actually appreciating the beauty of “weeds” :) BTW, I got their names (see edited entry above).

      • I should have recognized the nettle. I’m slipping. haha. Truth is, many flower are weeds and the other way around, too. Depends largely on where they’re growing.
