Didn't think of weeds. lovely images.

reader Wil said...

Well I always like old buildings especially if they harbour weeds in their walls. It means that these are historic places, which were here before we were.

Kacey said...

awesome window! And I'd rather the weeds be there than in my yard...

Ann from Montana said...

Beautiful - and peaceful!

Windowed weeds, wanting whacking, work wicked well, woman.

Love the windows. How Fab!

Debbie said...

Visited link and it's a beautiful place on the water! All the sailboats...oh but your post is about W. Got lost on the tour :)

Weeds in the Window worthless and not worthwhile to pull. Over weeks they surely will wither...

Bloom where you're planted...LOVE THOSE PICTURES! Yes, you have to just try that recipe, it is gooey, chewy goodness, if you like coconut, you'll especially love it, I don't even know how many points there are in it, just forget about counting calories for a minute or two and enjoy. Thanks for the nice comments...♥it!

I LOVE this! Goes very well with the theme of my "journey". I will have to really remember these weeds popping themselves on through this solid brick wall. If they can do, I surely can...

And, it is really not about the money.. it is really not...

Thank you so much for your comments and taking the time to write them to me.. I didn't me to get so emotional and I was really intending to delete that entire post the next morning, but it seems that many people responded to it.. so I left it in..

Thank you again.. Kayce

Wonderful W photo.

We have had so much rain lately that when you stand on my deck and listen closely, I swear you can hear the weeds growing in the back yard.

Meg said...

Thanks for your visit to my blog Brookville Daily Photo this morning. I hope you enjoyed my post today showing the baby rabbit eating the hibiscus flower.

I am now taking a diminishing dose of steroids for my Rheumatoid Arthritis pain and it works. I am pain free. I believe the chemotherapy drug is spelled "Methotrexate" that is used to treat a lot of things from cancer to arthritis and it has side effects that are troubling. So I need to talk to my doctor about it before I take it. Just missing a dose can be a real nightmare.

Anyway, I wanted you to know I stopped-in to repay your visit and comment with mine.

I enjoyed reading your blog post for today ABC Wednesday and I thought your photography was excellent.

I don't know if you like to read or not but if you do this place is amazing.

I just got my first shipment of used books from Strand's bookstore in New York City, yesterday. They have 18 miles of used books. Think about that. Anyway, they got here and I am totally happy with those I chose to read. I had to start out by just choosing a category, like photography, and go from there. I don't know how in the world they can keep track of so many books.

Look up Strand bookstore or copy and paste the URL here: http://www.strandbooks.com/app/www/p/home/

I absolutely LOVE these pictures.

These are the sorts of pictures that inspire someone (keats?) to write an incredible poem.

It'd be something about life where it ought not be, new growth in the midst of a cold, harsh exterior, beauty-- yet--in that cold brick wall, and the ultimate beauty when both green life and cold harshness intersect.

Yeah!

holly said...

so wait - you're saying the WEEDS represent our inner child who wants to take over the windows of our soul? is that what you're saying? or is it that the WEEDS are 'the man' who is constantly trying to oppress our windowedness?
i'm so confused.

Just what I needed to make me smile!! I wish that I had seen your escape twitter!! Would have escaped too!

Wonderful World of Weiners said...

Do you mean a panty liner for your mouth? One that would catch coffee? You might be on to something!!

Sara said...

Snap Catch said...
