Description

Along the burke I noticed a number of small plants with leaves that reminded me of carrot tops- fairly low growing and very divided. Each leaflet divides into 5 segments, each of which is further divided into 2 of 3 segments, depending on placement. The leaves were bright green with distinctly red tips. I was puzzled at identifying the plant until I walked 100 yards further and found this beautiful yellow flower- a poppy! No other buds were present on this plant, it seemed to be a very early blossom.
