Sunday Stills: Beast or Beauty

Take something bad and find a way to make it look good/find some beauty in it – at least photographically. Like an invasive weed, dusty cupboard, scummy pond, flies…
I didn't find anything ugly but I did find something beautiful that drives me nuts.

When I planted our landscape, I put in some Jupiter's Beard because it is a beautiful color, drought tolerant, and it attracts butterflies.  ...it is also extremely invasive.

Beauty

 
It also grows where I don't want it; like in the middle of my shrub roses.

  3. Certainly a beauty, too bad about it being invasive.
