Measuring no more than a fingernail across, the bloom of the weed known as Florida pusley is easy to overlook—which is unfortunate, given its intricate, delicate beauty. While the tiny pusley flowers can often appear, at first glance, to be white, an up-close view (such as the one afforded here by a macro lens) will often reveal a light purple hue to the minuscule petals.

What a pretty little flower and a fine macro too. I like the tiny flowers on all sorts of “weeds”.
As I wrote in an earlier post, quoting Emerson: A weed is a plant whose virtues have never been discovered. 🙂
Thank you, Inga!
This is beautiful!
It looks like summer : )
Thank you, my friend!
Interesting composition and color, Kenn. http://singhmv365.wordpress.com/2012/05/22/143365-pretty-in-pink/ 🙂
Wow–we share a similar eye. Love the richness of the color, as well as the bokeh, in your shot. Great work!
Thank you Ken for the follow on dragonshades and for your view of your world.
Thank you, my friend. Your work is wonderful, and your comment much appreciated.
What a beautiful little flower, Kenn!
And such a wonderful color too.
So many beautiful weeds in our midst–they just need better PR, that’s all.
Thank you, Connie!
I love the tiny woodland flowers.
Thanks, Pat–I’m often surprised at how interesting they can be.
