Flowers ('Weeds') in the Meadow

It's mid-summer, and lots of weeds are blooming in the meadow.  I find them really appealing, giving the meadow a special flavour all it's own with splashes of colour here and there.  Here's a sampling of what's currently in bloom.
 
A bright yellow Coreopsis.

Close look at Queen Anne's Lace.

Two Lady-bugs in Crown Vetch.

A close look at Musk-Mallow.

Common St. Johnswort.

The multiple flowers of Canada Thistle.

The slender rays of Elecampane.

Butter-and-Eggs that sureptitiously grew in the garden..
