The Teasels are starting to flower in this empty lot. Some of the heads are bursting, almost poping, with delicate white flowers. I have found a great appreciation of these weeds. For the most part they seem to be out of sight and off to the side – empty lots and road sides. They seem to handle the worst conditions and actually thrive in it. Beautiful simplicity in the worst of circumstances, I can admire that.
