Nature Walk: Scotch Broom

Scotch Broom, originally uploaded by The Sage’s Cupboard.

Even terrible things can be beautiful. Scotch Broom is an awful culprit for hay fever, which for some is bad enough. It is also an invasive species in British Columbia. It not only chokes out other plants, including young trees, but also increases the risk and intensity of wildfire in rural areas.

But what a great yellow!
