Recipe: These beautiful yellow flowers grow in huge patches and I feel no qualms about harvests as many as I can, they just keep pushing up blooms all summer long. And they give the most unexpected (and difficult to photograph, I'll try and get better images) drab olive green. Perfectly earthy and not at all what is expected from a bright yellow flower.
