Bittersweet Flowers

We have always called this bittersweet – the green leaves, when eaten, have a tangy citrus flavor – and it is a frequent visitor to our lawn.  This flower appeared in a cluster of other green along the river and I was surprised to see that it was bittersweet, or yellow woodsorrel (Oxalis stricta ).  We often see it in large patches and this was relatively small.
