Summertime…

To me nothing says summer like the color yellow.It seems all colors stand out if they are in a sea of green but yellow says “look at me”.Looking at you is Sweet Clover-Melilotus officinalis.Briefly yellow sweet clover has a branching stem bearing small small leaves.The plant  is here in the U.S. with a wide distro via Europe and is common in waste places-my fave-and roadsides.Flowering(also white) now thru October,they are a favorite of honey bees and add N to the soil-not bad for a weed!img_0302
