If there is a point I want to make, it would be that weeds can also be beautiful in their own way, if one knows how to appreciate them, that is. After all, they do help to soften the hard and less aesthetically appealing concrete, don't they?

The small green weed is a Phyllanthus urinaria which I posted before. The one with darker green round leaves with an opposite arrangement and red stems could be Euphorbia maculata (synonym: Chamaesyce maculata; common name: Spotted Spurge, Prostrate Spurge, Spotted Sandmat; Family: Euphorbiaceae) and an unknown but common weed. Could it be a Euphorbia too? See, I don't know everything or all the plants.

Anyway, several links on the E. maculata are found below:
