Pretty Weeds

So my lawn really needed mowing. I had been sick and, as a result, my little bit of grass got kinda high, and the weeds - my gosh the weeds! I actually had a couple of very interesting weeds. I found them sort of pretty. Wildflowers, I guess. And one all-green plant that had a nice shape. I planned to mow the lawn on Sunday, but I was going to keep the weeds/wildflowers and see how they turned out. There was one, especially, that I was very curious to see "bloom." It had prickly balls on the tops of the stems.

I had to work Saturday afternoon. I'd traded with someone. I usually work Saturday day. So off to work I went with a yard full of weeds and plans to mow.

I came home Saturday night and - guess what - my nice neighbor had mowed my lawn for me!! Weeds/Wildflowers and all!!

I was gracious. I understand that it was a very nice gesture for her to mow my lawn, and I appreciate that. But gosh I missed my pretty weeds. Now I may never know how that special plant looks when it blooms.
