Sweet Clover, New Color

There are a variety of clovers along the riverbank.  This was pasture country, and so buckwheat, alfalfa, and clovers are not all that surprising.  This sweet yellow clover ( Melilotus officinalis ) is also known as melilot.  It’s one of the more odd plants I’ve seen, shooting straight up in very spare strands but heavily coated with flowers.
