This is the best time of year to take a walk in the vacant wastelands to pick a bouquet of wonderful "weeds". As a gardener, I would not welcome any of these plants in my garden: they would take advantage of the fertile soil and regular moisture to overwhelm my cultivated plants. No, these beauties thrive on poor soil, intense sun and drought.
Here is a list of some of the flowers I was able to identify:
bird's foot trefoil
Queen Anne's Lace
August flower (or lionstooth)
