Been seeing a woodpecker in the tree behind my house all year. Unfortunately, it's always too far away to get a really decent pic with the camera lenses I've got.

Hope you said "Good Morning" to that Magpie Nick ?  ;) Neat photos mate  :thumbsup:

You can see part of the arch that we put in the ground and trailed the rose up one side and the clematis (I thought it was a weed!) up the other.


The inability to tell the difference between most flowers and weeds has got me out of gardening for most of my juvenile and adult life  :angel:

Weeds are just flowers growing in the wrong place.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Flowers are weeds that have had a makeover... and better PR...

There again, a weed is something we haven't yet found a commercial use for...

It may be my own more personal take on the term, but, as far as I'm concerned a 'weed' is simply any plant that is in a place you don't want it to be. What otherwise would be a part of a glorious Bermuda lawn, if in the flower bed, gets yanked (is Bermuda grass normally considered a weed? I consider it one if it's in with my Irises!). What otherwise would be a prize winning rose bush, in the middle of a cornfield, could be a weed, too.  ;D  Over the years many of the weeds I'd pull from flower beds were things like tiny trees starting to grow or the starts of other ornamental plants.As I said, this could just be my own interpretation, I'm wrong, and scientifically it's more focused than this, but I'm sticking with my definition.  :angel:

Y'know, that works too.  :thumbsup:
