A weed in a nearby field reminds me of my school days!

Royal Horticultural Website explains:

Bindweed

Hedge bindweed or bellbind (Calystegia sepium) with its pure white trumpet flowers is a familiar sight, choking plants in borders and twining around any plant shoot or cane. The smaller field bindweed (Convolvulus arvensis) with white or pink flowers is problematic in long grass and bare soil.

In Russia it appears that Bindweed comes in an attractive blue colour.  Here is a Russian bindweed dance, the ladies have white hankies!

In our local Oxfam book and cd shop I saw this LP.  Sadly I no longer have the facility to play Vinyl. There are several videos on You Tube. This has the charm of being funny, and played at low fi quality from an old record player.  Also the person’s cat stroll past at the start.

A Geranium that is growing wild in a field amongst the weeds!   Definition of a weed, is an unwanted plant, or something like that. Does this make this geranium a weed?

Here is a video to show the variety of Geranium flowers that exist.
