Oxalis pes-caprae is more commonly known as the Bermuda buttercup, and is sometimes grown as an ornamental. It has compound leaves, each consisting of three heart-shaped leaflets resembling clover leaves. Flowers are attractive, but are a nuisance when they spread into gardens or shrubs. Flowers occur singly or in clusters on the ends of slender leaf stalks; each flower has 5 yellow petals. This species closely resembles woodsorrel but often grows more upright, has more showy flowers, and reproduces largely by bulbs. These flowers cover the fields and meadows from mid-November onwards, and it is said that the huge swathes of yellow fields can be seen from outer space!

These are both beautiful Carol with excellent lighting and colour. In version 2 I particularly like the way the main bloom is lit from the side and the upper one is almost backlit with the light shining through it.

My favourite Mediterranean weed! When visiting our friend in N Cyprus in March, their garden had plenty so it obviously flowers through the seasons. Beautifully captured, Carol.

Two wonderful captures of this lovely flowers, and a great bit of info.
I'm not sure if it's the same flower, but It looks like a kind that grows in Israel and has a sour taste to it, which as children we used to pick and eat, very daringly as it was so sour. Am I right?

I know it's a weed Carol in some warm parts of the world ,but I love it Smile I've seen it growing in profusion in Greece, Portugal and Australia . I kept trying to grow it but to no avail not warm or dry enough for it over here .

I like your colour , composition and a lovely presentation xxx
