Bitterweed (or Yellowdicks or Bitter Sneezeweed)
SmugMug Daily Link
This yellow flower is growing in all the fields in my area in central North Carolina (NC) right now. This shot was taken early yesterday morning when it was a bit cloudy out. Just as well to give this shot a bit of a softer and dreamy feel.
Apparently if cows eat this week their milk can taste bitter.
A continuing shot in my unofficial series of things that grow beside a tobacco (or corn or soybean) field:-)
Hoping the sun comes out today. We're at the point in the year where it takes a while after I get up to tell. Missing those mornings where the sun was already up when I got up. 64 degrees here this AM. The humidity is gone. No temps over 90 degrees in the 7 day forecast and night temps in the 60s too. Fall is coming!
