Roadsides in summer


This time of year, every roadside is blanketed in chicory flowers - if the weed whackers haven't gotten to it.

I wish I lived in a truely small town. Where I live is considered a small part of town but as i've grown up it has REALLY expanded.

Love the chicory by the road, remind me of PA, too...

So that's what these flowers are called. Thank you. And what a pity the weed whackers destroy them.

I often wonder what makes a weed (nasty -- eradicate) and what makes a wild flower (desirable -- protect).

When this photo opened, an "Oh!" rushed out of me. Really fine shot. You are such an accomplished photographer, you make me want to visist Sharon in 3-D. I don't think being there would capture the place quite like you do, though. You should be very pleased!
Thanks for opening our window on your lovely town.

Nice shot! I know I've heard of chicory for a long time, but I had never seen it. Now I have! What a nice little flower, so bad they have to mow them down on the roadside, but I suppose, tall grass on the roadside is a traffic hazard.
