Yarrow...


This flower reminds me of queen anne's lace but it's a lot shorter and it blooms earlier. This has to be the most common wildflower on the roadside, I see it everywhere I go. They bloom for a very long time too, the blooming started in early June and they're still going strong.
I had a couple of questions yesterday about the foliage behind the tall meadow rue blossoms. The foliage were ferns and not part of the flower plant itself. The spot where I took that photograph stays shaded for most of the day so there are a lof of ferns growing, it was also the same spot where I found the pasture rose the other day.

The wild yarrow is very much a part of my landscape here...I'm really glad there are beautiful colored ones to put in the gardens. They often escape tho and I find pink yarrow growing up in my yard! (Just another flower to mow around!!!)

Its a pretty little flower. I don't remember ever noticing them here, but I might overlook it with all the Queen Anne's Lace right now.
