Lovely wildflower!

Thanks, Lea -- I love seeing it, and there is a lot of it this year. Alas, you have to be out earlier in the day if you want to see it, as the blossoms close up the hotter it gets. Sometimes you'll still see some in bloom around midday on a mild, cloudy day, but they are mostly done blooming by then.
