There be yellow and there be more yellow. with all the rain we’ve had the plains are in full fall bloom. There are pastures that have yellow carpets so many blooms of the ditch sunflower cover it. Then there are the yellow Chamisiama. cliusters of tiny yellow blooms. Weeds with yellow blosoms hug the ground. The blue green of the grasses and the yellow flowers make for some striking cpontrasts.
The pastures are loaded with flowers and the stubble from the wheat has a good collection of yellow weeds growing in it.
Then there is the Indian snow marker. It puts out a spike of yellow flowers and the heigth of the flower is to be the depth of the snow this winter. The plant is usually pretty accurate.
These things are about 3-4 feet tall and if we get that kind of snow on the prairie this winter there will be some serious problems. They also have nice soft furry leaves and make a good sub for TP. Plant with multiple uses.
Then there are athe sunflowers. Some farmers have planted fields that are 2-3 miles long and half mile wide. Yellow sunflowers rolling over the hills.
The farm has been abandoned and been empty for a number of years. The out buildings are used for storage. Rows and rows of sunflowers beyond the RR tracks.
In the foreground are some different yellow flowers and some grey dusty ones.
On the horizon is Denver International Airport. The tents of the terminal, hangers and the tower. About 25 miles away.
Oh for want of a yellow flower……yyyeeeeeellllllooooowwww……………….
