Partridge Pea

This strange looking little yellow flower with its lovely fronds of leaves appeared in my rewilded garden not long ago. The fern-like leaves look like those on the sensitive plant to me, but they don’t react to a touch. Apparently these do produce a pod (pea?) and these are eaten by (surprise!) partridges and other such birds. I don’t know how this has grown in this wet summer, as it is supposedly drought resistant but clearly it is a hardy little plant and I hope to see it in that patch for years to come. If you haven’t seen these before, as I hadn’t, then I’m glad to introduce you to this little beauty. Have a lovely day, friends. View all posts on the Home page.  A Flower a Day #364

  1. Oh, is that what that little yellow flower is?! Thank you, Ellie, for enlightening me. I.have seen these many times on my walks through the woods and meadows near my house. Thank you, Ellie, for solving the mystery of the little yellow meadow flower.

  2. It is very unique looking Ellie. I will have to take a close look at it next time I’m down. The leaves certainly are different looking. Thanks again for sharing. Hugs to you and Steve.
