During a Sunday morning walk in Palm Beach, FL I found myself wondering through a golf course parking lot. Near a telephone pole I found a bunch of wild little plants (weeds) expressing themselves freely next to the manicured grounds of the course. Edits were done with Apple's iPhoto. Enjoy!

"Expressing themselves freely"... you realize I wander through your photos to "read" just as much as to "see" what you're photographing next.
Fantastic colour by the way! Love it. #5779177
