Then and Now

I photographed a striking bush of yellow flowers on Munson Mountain in June, then yesterday we saw it covered in fluffy seeds. What a dramatic change! We think it might be a species of Rabbit Brush.
There are lots of "Butter and Eggs" or common toadflax about all summer here. They have an orange patch inside the yellow toad's mouth shaped flower, hence the name. They are quite attractive.

What an unusual plant name...Butter and Eggs. It has very pretty flowers! Also lovely to see the natural progression from flower to seed heads on the Rabbit's Bush.
