Gillar dess skörhet.

"So it can be better to keep an old plastic bottle instead of buying new "Norweigan Spring Water", everyday - to keep the amount of the nerve-toxin BPA lower? Of course, if we don't use heavy detergent to clean it with?

Weed or not, it is beautiful and an excellent capture!

Lara said...

oh, well, you see, even they are beautiful!

kjpweb said...

Beautiful - the dewdrops on it, the light!

Mandy said...

What is a weed but a flower in the wrong place.

Reader Wil said...

It needs a good photographer to turn a weed into a magnificent beauty, and that's exactly what you did!

PERBS said...

Looks like a Hollyhock flower to me. I would never consider it a weed. Beautiful capture!

Kerri said...

A weed is a flower growing wild!
I LOVE it!! And I LOVE how you captured the dew on the flower. Great work!!

dot said...

Well at least you are honest about it but you could have told me it was some rare beauty and I'd have never known the difference.
I think weeds have the prettiest flowers. This looks rather like one of our wild morning glories.

Here in England we give it the unglamorous name of Bindweed, but it's flowers a fragility and your photo with the raindrops is a lovely.

Louise said...

Some of my favorite "flowers" are weeds! This is an excellent photo!

nonizamboni said...

Gorgeous, wild or not! Nice shot.

John said...

Lovely shot!

Rune,
It's NOT a weed in my garden. I think it's a weed in warm climates but not at high latitudes like Norway and Canada. So forget the weed word. It's beautiful!

Flowers are not my favorite object, but you can make beautiful results out of anything

Det stemmer det, Nusfjord er på en måte blitt et museum. Mener det kostet 50 pr. pers, om det er verdt det er en annen sak. De har resturert mye der og har en kino(film) som går i loop hele dagen.

It is a very nice weed and it is white like the virgin in a white wedding dress. It might be a weed but it sure looks nice. It is like the wild onion in my yard. If you let them go, they put out a very nice white blossom that pleases me very much.

Utrolig vakkert enno en gang:) Du er en racer med kamerat:)

Carletta said...

Ah, this is a beautiful image. I love the dew and the light. It looks to me like a morning glory and it is in my book at least beautiful in all it's glory!

Ivar Ivrig said...

Flott komponert. Og dugget gjør susen :-)

PERBS said...

Do you have an email you would share with me? I would like to send you a couple photos of Hollyhocks I found searching Google today. They look just like your photo. When I was a little girl, we made little dolls out of them with flowing dresses when turned upside down. They grow fast and tall generally and some say they "grow like a weed" because you can't get rid of them easily. Once planted, you get them every year and they do come in other colors. BUT, they are flowers.

I wish I could see the leaves on your photo better but I know the flower was the focus. . . I also spent quite a bit of time looking up Morning Glory because I recently had a photo of one at a side angle on my blog. . . but I have ruled that out. I still doubt that it is a wildflower.

I moderate comments on my blog postcardsfromthe northwest so if you sent your email in a comment I would not publish it. Let me know. I just can't believe someone told you that was a weed.

By the way, I got so taken back on how beautiful a flower it was and its real name that I didn't say anything about how neat the raindrops looked on it!

Let me know. Thanks!

evlahos said...

Er ikke HDR nei. Har ikke fått taket på HDR i Photoshop ennå. Men nå er det lenge siden jeg har prøvd og i mellomtiden lært meg editering litt bedre

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

Ida said...

Nydelig!
Og du, i motsetning til vår venn Arne, så kan jeg aldri få nok av blomster.... ;)

Petunia said...

Nydelig bilde og med de duggdråpene på, var det jo helt perfekt:)
Jeg har vært på fotosafari i dag. Finn frem termos og fjellstøvlene og bli med!

It matters not that the flower is a weed. It's a beautiful flower.

Oh, this plant is a nightmare in my garden. It Strangles everything around it. Even my bike, if I dont use it for some days.
But your foto is gourgeus!!
