Goldthread for Mellow Yellow Monday


The intriguing fascination for me with this wildflower is its name: Goldthread! As can be seen in the photo above, its roots are golden yellow! I think I had id'ed this flower first by its blossom , then reading that its roots were golden I set out to verify that. These photos were taken on May the 21st, 2008, and this week I will go in search of it again. It was found along an old woods road. I had tried to transplant it last year but it didn't take.

Very beautiful - it has a wildflower's never-been-broken-to-the-garden look that's particularly appealing.
