fragile opportunists, originally uploaded by julesberry2001.

Unlike some, these tiny flowers have real character. I have previously seen them flowering colourfully in the cracks between ancient flagstones that pave temple grounds. These ones were found dangling elegantly from one of the pots in our "garden". The next day they were completely gone, thanks to an overnight rainshower.

Looks like Oxalis corymbosa which is not so fragile - its an invasive weed here in Australia. Comes from the Americas I think.

That looks like the right plant. And yes there is a lot of it about here too, but the flowers themselves are not so rainproof...

We certainly export some excellent weeds!
