Macro Monday

It's just about that season to start mowing the lawn again.  But until we drag the mower out, I will be just as happy to photograph these pretty little flowers/weeds that are sprouting up all over my backyard.
By the way, is there anything better than the smell of fresh cut grass on a warm day??
I even enjoy waking up to the sound of my neighbors mowing the lawn.
They are very whimsical and the lens I was using gave them a etheral feel with the way they are sort of glowing.
I feel like fairies should live here.
I used my new favorite texture (which I found HERE) on this one and faded the color a little.  I like how it sort of has a vintage feel now.
Awww, lovely bokeh!

I love the abstract painting feel in this one from the textures that I added. 
What are these anyway?
