Aren't these all beautiful?  Believe it or not they are all considered weeds.  My boss, the Parks Manager, says weeds are only misplaced flowers.  Hmmmm.....

I love weeds! Especially ones that look like those. The first plant (sacred datura), is actually one of my favorites! I like what your boss said! It reminds me of Ralph Waldo Emerson's quote "What is a weed? A plant whose virtues who have not yet been discovered."

Lovely pictures :)

I like what your boss said. It is so true!! And, YES, these are precious flowers. Funny thing is that the purple one exists in Brazil too (where I was born). I do remember seeing them around our place, when I was a child.
