Knowing nothing about flowers really I'm going to say 3. Because it looks like it germinates. The first two look like they are pollenating flowers. They have those thissle things in the center. Weeds are not known for being bee attractors.
Wait, none of them are. There's no buds. ;)

Nice daffodils, Drama.

The answer to the "which is a weed", was a trick question. The definition of a weed is anything growing where you don't want it to be. The only one that wasn't a weed was the Red Trumpet vine. So, since no one guessed the correct answer I get to keep the prize for myself. Sorry.

To anyone who is considering a Morning Glory vine...don't do it! This plant is so invasive I have spent eight years trying to remove it from my yard. It tries to overtake the trumpet vine and every spring I spend hours filling up trash cans trying to get rid of it.

Anyone else have some spring pics to share??

Beautiful flowers, doggyhog!! Mums will also take over a yard. We thought we had ours dug up only to have them come back.

Seldom seen anything take over an area like Primrose.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
