Homage to the humble weed (2)

By definition, a weed is an unwanted plant: an irritant that  upsets our sense of order and tidiness!  But, when observed closely, a weed often exhibits interesting features such as form, shape, pattern, texture and colour.  It can provide source material for creative development and expression

Each image in this series is an interpretation of a small weed (varying between  5 and 12 cms) growing in the cracks of my garden path.  In some instances the original background has been modified slightly to emphasise the features

It is tempting to see a similarity in shape with artefacts or creatures e.g  an item of jewellery

or, perhaps, a prehistoric creature?!
