The Golden Wildflower

Throughout the eastern U.S. and in some places in the mid-west, the golden ragwort paints fields and sunlit woodland openings with splashes of golden yellow daisy-like blossoms. Sometimes it is confused with dandelions and hawkweeds by novices, but upon closer examination its 8 to 13 yellow petals, heart shaped basil leaves and clusters of blossoms helps to identify it. When you see these flowers, bend down, get a closer look and enjoy the beauty that this dainty yellow wildflower offers.
