what exactly are weeds...

temple ceiling...

more flowers, this is such a colourful, yet simple ceiling in a temple that is very open to the elements, always reminds me of india for some reason, perhaps its the wind blowing through and all the colours...

wild flowers...

everywhere you look, of every colour, shape and size, i'm not a particularly flowery person, in that i don't know the names, but i don't tire of admiring their beauty....any idea what this is?

one of my favourite...

vegetables, and certainly one of the cutest around, i just love the way they curl around into little spirals, who can get tired of eating such prettiness ; ) and the smell, i love it, like walking on a wet day in the woods.. anyone know what the english name is, think it's kogomi in japanese..
