    Default Yellow Rattle (Rhinanthus minor)

    This was growing in my mini meadow, it has taken us several years for the seeds to germinate and at last we have the flowers. They are parasitic and parasitise the grasses, this of course weakens the grass and permits the influx of further and differing wildflower species. The name comes from thenoise they make inthe summer breeze, the seeds when formed rattle in the once flower head.

    With "wild flowers" like this, who needs grass. A clear colorful view with complimentary BG. TFS

    Very neat looking flower. The off center framing works quite nicely. Detail is right on. Cool looking patterns on those leaves.
