08.26.2015 Fern-leaved False Foxglove

One of the wildflowers I look for annually during a Quabbin Park ride around is this lovely native yellow flower (Aureolaria pedicularia) that often exhibits a bushy growth which can reach about 3 feet in height.

Happy Humpday folks.  We finally had some rain last night which was quite welcomed.  It wasn’t exactly a prolonged downpour, but we did see enough to get a decent soaking in sporadic showers.

    Congrats on the liquid falling from the sky. I will be celebrating my humpday by golfing. The sky is super clear and blue with temps in the 55˚ range now.

    Beautiful flowers btw.

    More yellow! I especially like the last photo, because of the peachy glow on the buds. I’m always intrigued by the color changes flowers exhibit from one stage to another, and this is more lovely than usual.

    It reminds me of our Carolina Jessamine (Gelsemium sempervirens) which has been particularly lush this year. I’ve seen some that apper to be coming back into bloom. It’s a little late, but the temperatures are declining a few degrees, and we have had some good rain, so maybe they’re feeling extra perky.

    • Yes, more ywllow. 🙂 It’s always a treat to see the difference once a flower pops open revealing a very different color from the bud.

      I’ve been seeing some late summer flowers earlier this year as well as some re-flowering of earlier species. The times, they are a changin’.

  4. The flower in the least picture looks like a mouth with fangs about to bite.

  5. Great shots of this plant. I was just mentioning this plant to Steve S., in relation to parasitic plants.
