It’s time for another brilliant splash of yellow from this wildflower growing on the side of the road. Wildflower or weed, whatever you want to call it, doesn’t change the way that it brightens up the landscape as you walk or drive by. The details inside this pretty little thing are worth checking out on the fullscreen gallery, as there are so many tiny filaments packed in there. I hope this spot of sunshine brightens your day, friends. A Flower a Day #346 View all posts on the Home page

  1. I recognize this wild-haired child. It grows all around the countryside and lines our meadowlands trails, waving in the breeze to us passersby, catching the rays and spreading goodwill and happiness. It deserves a better name, don’t you think, being neither prickly nor sow-like? Thank you, Ellie, for sharing it’s cheerinesa with us today.

    1. A better name for sure and I think Sun Child would be an excellent candidate. There is nothing wrong with either female pigs or thistles, of course, but that name really doesn’t do this sunny thing justice. Thanks Janet. Where do we submit our requests?

  2. Thank you very much Ellie. It is a bright spot of sunshine. And it was amazing to zoom in and see all those little filaments in the center of that flower. One never notices that when you are walking along. Thanks again for sharing hope you have a great day. Hugs to you and Steve
