Weeds are just plants we don't like. This is lovely, and you do it justice.

@GJC: Thanks! I agree with your description of weeds. :-)

I like the added "still life" feel of the vase. Nice Anita.

the detail in those leaves is wonderful, as is the light and texture of the grey/white background that blends so beautifully into the almost invisible glass bottle.

I adore the precious detail in this image and the beautiful desaturated color !! Luscious.

@DULCIE: Thank you! I seldom use desaturated colors, but i likes the result.

Chantal from Terheijden, Netherlands

@Chantal: Thank you. Textures are fun, aren't they?

I see it is aka dead-nettle because it looks like the nettles I know although not related. Elora is so right about the presentation as many of us have said before and the nostalgia is even more sweetly pronounced here.

@Ronnie 2¢: Ronnie: You are right--this is a Lamium as is dead-nettle. I'm not a botanist, so don't know more. Henbit grows by the roadside. Thanks for the support!

Marcie from Newton, United States

Such gorgeous processing. It reminds me of a (colored) pen and ink etching. Wonderful muted tones and colors in this.
