Weeds or wildflowers?

Last weekend, I went for a nice long walk with my mother-in-law in the community where she lives. Unlike my boys, she was very patient with me whenever I stopped to take photos :-).
I love cornflowers. Whenever I see them blooming on the side of country roads in the summer, I can't help but smile.The question is... Are these weeds or are these wildflowers?
I once posed that question to the president of the local garden club. Her answer was that if there is a single plant and it isn't where you want it, then it is a weed. If there are several and you like where they are located, then it's a wildflower.

I'm off to see if I can locate a bunch of Queen Anne's Lace to relocate it to a place I'd like it... (BTW, the spider from this web wasn't anywhere that I could see. Or I wouldn't have been brave enough to take this photo!)
Wishing you a weekend filled with wildflowers and not a single weed!
Blessings, Patti
