yellow wildflowers for Mellow Yellow Monday

These two yellow petaled wildflowers are growing in my yard.  the first is an old childhood favourite a Buttercup,often used to determine if I liked butter or not.  Remember? , a friend held it up to your neck and if the buttercup created a yellow shadow, then, yes, you liked butter.  I think that is how it used to go. Isn't this blossom beautiful? It is so shiny its as if it were shellacked! Buttercups seem to be early this year, and they seem to be so fat and lustrous.  The second yellow wildflower, shown above, Yellow Wood Sorrel. always grows in the same flower bed each year.The many clumps of heart shaped leaves tell me there are many more blossoms to come of this Yellow Wood Sorrel wildflower. This is s tiny, lovely, 5 petal  flower that decorates my flower bed..

Happy Monday to all. To view a wonderful variety of yellow-themed photos from other bloggers around the world, just click on the link below

Both are pretty! So cheerful. We always called the Wood Sorrel (Oxalis), "sour grass" and used to eat the leaves when we were kids.

Mary, how very interesting. I did s google search and found it called 'sour grass' there also. My wildflower knowledge is greatly increased today. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxalis

Thank you for your enriching comment. Ann

I love buttercups. Their brightness and shine is just amazing. For us, it was dandelions, and if the yellow reflected on your neck, it meant that you liked *boys*! At that age, oh, horror! :-)
