Wild flowers vs weeds

Good morning, just wanted to put up a photo. I love flowers! This is a thistle blossom. The plant is currently about 2.5 feet tall. (That is nearly a meter) My Mom would say it was a weed. If you didn't plant it on purpose or pay for it, she called it a weed. That did not stop her from appreciating them, it was just what she called them. I have quite a few weeds around here and they are beautiful.
I live in the south and the climate is great so lots of things are happy to grow. People have lived in this area for a long time. It is not unusual to find a clump of daffodils, or some other garden flower, in the woods. I can picture the grin on my Mom's face, as she pronounced them weeds. She never made it to my current home, but she would have loved it.
