Gently Mad

It certainly is pretty,poor bees. Thanks for visiting my site. Hope you enjoy the omnibuses!


I never saw these flowers and nobody can guess they are poisonous !


These look quite lovely, Sallie, if poisonous to herds. You do a service posting this here for others to take notice. We have garlic mustard (or is it mustard garlic) growing rampant here. A vacant lot next to us doesn't help the situation as they are so prolific there they are crowding out the creeping Jenny!

What gorgeous pools of yellow. Such a shame it's harmful to horses and others.


I'd call that dayglow yellow.
I wonder if it is a native or introduced. Invasive, non-native species are a problem everywhere but natives, even ones that are toxic, often play an important role in the environment.

Nice post Sallie


Don't judge a book by its cover... :-) It's beautiful anyway.

love that fuzzy little fellow you captured among the mellow yellow!


Well, they sure the heck are beautiful!
Wonder if it's native to that area?

Pretty poison indeed...
What happened to the bee next?


These are lovely.

Have a fabulous week.

It seems to be coming back big time too - such a lush amount of blooms!
Should I say your poison is pretty? :)


it seems too pretty to be so harmful!


We have noxious weeds where I live too, and you're supposed to keep them under control by law. But it can be a challenge, especially when the neighbors don't seem to care, as is the case here. Nice photos.


They may be poison but they surely are pretty too. That's a shame that it's lethal to cows and horses.


We have a similar plant called tansy. Its flowers grow in a flat cluster and do not have petals. I don't know if it is dangerous to livestock, however.

Very pretty, though!


Im pretty sure I pulled some of that up this weekend when I was trimming the edge of the yard...Didnt know it was Poisonous to herds---We have "rattle box" or Crotalaria that is also poisonous to horses---but is also a Very pretty yellow Plant!


Yes, it's the same with the Camomile Daisy in CO - grows..."like a weed." Though I have mostly eradicated it from my property, it spreads from all my neighbors, so I must begin anew each spring.


One bee's honey is another horse's poison... oh, that's not how the expression goes...? I still think they are pools of sunshine.

[Sallie, I've changed to another email address, but the one you have for me still works. :-) ]


Simply beautiful, Sallie! Happy MYM to you! Have a great week!


it does make for a nice bright patch, though!
