Wild Wednesday: 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 wild flowers, bugs, birds, snakes and other curiosities found in the wild?

Why not join my weekly MEME called #WildWednesday. Every Wednesday I will be sharing a photograph of wild flora or fauna in my local area. Who will join me?

How it works: Simply post a photo to your blog with some relevant blurb if possible. Include the words ‘Wild Wednesday’ in the post title and use the hashtag #wildwednesday. Please don’t forget to leave a link to your blog post in the comments below. If you want to link back to my post and share the love and learn together, that would be great, thank you.

    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.
