Roadside Yellow....



The ant on the birdfoot trefoil is easier to find than yesterdays on the milkweed blossoms. The bottom picture is butter and egg blossoms, they remind me of orchids and a whole batch of them growing on the side of the road is quite an impressive site.

Your flower shots are something else! You can almost smell them!

Really beautiful! I like the first one in particular....the color is so pretty. I can see why the second one in masses would be beautiful! Just saw a comment mentioning the "butter and eggs" on a different blog...how funny to see the name twice in one day!

Ha Ha John....Roy had the UK's version of Butter and Egg blossoms on his blog this morning and I said they were "Eggs and Butter" hahaha!!
Do you think they taste the same???

Lovely pictures!
