Mellow Yellow




So it's yellow

 Partridge pea is a great addition to add to an area, attracting game birds and added color all summer long. There is a charm that draws me to this plant each time I see it. A Pheasants Forever chapter was distributing seed and encouraging land owners to apply it around their land.

  1. Great shots of "all those things" that make the prairie beautiful. Love the little bird "getting dinner" on the dried sunflower. Nice post. Have a good week. Mickie ;)

  2. That purple vervain is lovely. How I wish it grew here- We do have a few blazing stars that live on the Western Highland Rim with its "prairie remnants", but no vervain. Betsy

  3. There are so many of these that I love, Steve, but the last one is my favorite of the bunch. You can tell that I'm partial to butterflies, and the combination of the colors of the butterfly and the flower make this one a winner.

  5. Very lovely collection of yellow. It's funny how certain times of the year there's an abundance of one color

  8. We have masses of partridge pea in our crp acres this year. It is pretty -- but I'm hoping it doesn't take everything over next spring. :)

  9. I've been seeing a lot of goldenrod around here. I always like driving down the road and seeing it's cheery color.
