Challenge has finished
Flowering weeds can be as beautiful as those plants we cultivate, even though we often think of them as pests. Show us the beauty in these flowers, in their natural world. I know that a weed in one country may be a treasure somewhere else, that's okay, it is what YOU consider to be a weed where you live. Wildflowers in the countryside will be in a separate challenge later; this challenge is just about flowering weeds. Also, I'm NOT referring to the smoking variety of weed. That can be someone else's challenge..... Insects or other small creatures may be present in your entry but must not dominate the picture. SIZE DOES MATTER: See below!

This is a flowering lawn weed that comes up every spring and only flowers once then its gone. It's called a "Henbet". The flowers come in purple or pink. The flower is about 1/2 inch tall and very narrow. It has a tubular throat and looks like an rare orchid under high magnification. Way to pretty to be called a weed.
