I love this photo, but I really don't know why. The reality is that it's a photo of weeds. But they look like a Monet.

The color harmonies give it a dreamy quality and yet looking closely, you see the swan feathers and the early June gunk on the lake.

Maybe, because weeds grow no matter what, because they truly are a natural part of their environment, and because when you're a child you see their beauty, they should be admired. So what if they're not rare? They bloom where they are planted, they require very little care, and they are prolific. it doesn't take a great deal to appreciate the rarest of beautiful flowers, but appreciating a weed requires some creativity.
