Weeds Will Grow Anywhere by 

This pretty Herb Robert (Geranium robertianum) is growing out of the top of my guttering. (Devon, England) To me these are weeds and I pull them up by the armful but my local garden centre sell these at £3 a pot!! Perhaps I should pot up my weeds and sell them at the door!!!

Geranium robertianum, commonly known as Herb Robert, Storksbill, Dove’s Foot, Crow’s Foot, or (in North America) Robert Geranium, among other names, is a common species of cranesbill native to Europe and parts of Asia, North America, and North Africa. It is common throughout Great Britain in woodland, hedgerows, scree and maritime shingle. (Botanical information: Wikipedia)

Camera used: Pentax K30

I live in the UK and in 2011 when I joined Red Bubble,started experimenting with different settings and angles. I enjoy finding suitable pictures of flowers, Scotland, reflections, lamps and seats and have now branched out into different subjects.
In 2013 I finally realised my dream of visiting Australia and New Zealand. Whilst there I purchased a Pentax camera so have been able to expand my portfolio of flower macros among other new and exciting subjects.

    Yikes, I thought I was the only one on earth with this weed as a problem! :) Great shot!

  • Thanks Michael. Don’t you believe you are alone!! I put arm-fulls on the compost heap every spring and at odd times throughout the year too. They are so pretty but very prolific. At least they pull up very easily:)
