So Very Mellow Yellow

These little cuties are bursting open
 creating an explosion of yellow
 at the wetlands where I often walk.
Do you know what it is?
 I really need to buy a wildflower book.
I hope you have a beautiful week!

Lotus corniculatus,
Bird's Foot Trefoil.
[From memory : I amaze myself sometimes :-) -- now if I could only remember what I had for breakfast this morning]
You took a lovely portrait of this yellow wildflower.
I ahve used it for dying unspun wool.

Here in NY Laura, we call them "Butter and Sugar." They are wonderful little flowers, and such a beautiful yellow. I just love this photograph!

Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a great day!

Yellow is such a color full of energy I think. Its is a beauty. I looked in my book and if I knew the size of the blooms and plant it would help but I think it looks like a Monkey Flower.
If you find out let me know.
A Delight.
