Wildflowers: Milk Vetch (alfavaca-dos-montes)

I first started taking photographs of the Milk Vetch back in December while walking along the cliff path at our local beach, and it is still flowering in mid-February. I’ve noticed some of of the flowers are now turning to seed pods. I did take a photograph, but the strap of my mobile phone was dangling in front of the lense. Ho-hum.

It is also referred to as alfavaca-dos-montes, mountain locust, erophaca baetica boiss.

Do you enjoy taking photographs of wildflowers, bugs, birds, snakes and other curiosities found in the wild?

Every Wednesday I will be sharing a photograph of wild flora or fauna in my local area. Who will join me ?

    1. It grows wild on a lot of empty plots near where I live. I’ve never seen it in any tended garden as I suppose it is a weed. But when you look at all the wild ‘weeds’ I wonder why. They are far more hardy then some of the cultivated flowers.
