A Few Yellow/Orange flowers
Yes we were very busy this spring with these yellow flowers taking over our front lawn. And inspired by my oldest grandsons bumper sticker, "MAKE AMERICA GREEN AGAIN" MS. T. and I attacked them with a vengeance the old fashioned way by digging them out one at a time. No 24D herbicide for use. We've also been slowly getting rid of turf (lawns) by encouraging native woodland wildflower beds. A few highlights follow .....
Yellow Lady Slipper (a native orchid)
Last but not least, on the edge of the woods, the somewhat rare but very vibrant yellow/orange Hoary Pucoon.
