It may be a weed, but the light shining on it is wonderful.

In Scotland, we call that a carl-doddie! We used to play with them as kids. Lovely shot and beautiful light. For interest, this is a copy of part of the entry in the Scottish dictionary : L.Bnff. 1876 (per Mry.2):
“Carl-doddies” were frequently used by children in mock duels, the object being to see who could first knock off the head of the opponent's weapon. The traditional explanation of the name is that it refers to the Jacobite-Hanoverian struggle, ‘Carl-Doddie' being literally translateable as ‘Charlie-Georgie'”(Abd.16 1938).] There you go!

So simple but so effective. I think they may be called lambs tongues here.

Lovely

I can't remember what they are called but like Issi @jamibann I used to play with them too when I was a child. We used to loop the stem around the head of the weed and then see how far we could flirt it

Lovely capture! I believe that's buckhorn plantain or a variety of plantain. It has medicinal qualities! I spend a lot of time researching the plants I know nothing about when I find them growing in my yards. I will mow around the special ones. LOL!

Nice!

we have this in our garden and i think it was planted, rather than being a weed - but can't remember what it's called! beautiful image

Nicely captured. Did you ever wrap the stem around the part at the top and "shoot" the tops off?
May 30th, 2020  
@jamibann Thanks for the interesting information.
