The Bailey’s Bottle Bloom has finally started to open. :) And what a pretty, soft yellow it is. It’s frilly, double blooms should be beautiful when they all open. [Nasturtium – Primrose Jewel]. There are many buds yet to open on this one plant, and I have more planted in other pots, but I’ve been babying this one. The bloom isn’t fully open yet; I’ll take more photos as others open.
Another pretty yellow that caught my eye earlier this week is this Common Birdsfoot Trefoil or Birdsfoot Deervetch, a common native flower found along roadsides, pastures, and in our paved parking lot! Viewed closely, you can see the pea type bloom (even though it is of the Lotus genus) and I thought it rather remarkable the way the blooms looked like spokes of a wheel. I’m sure I’ve seen this many times before, but never really stopped to LOOK.
