Welcome to JELLEN IN THE BLACK HILLS ~ My digital journal, where I highlight the natural wonders around me ~ the birds, beasts, botany, and beauty ~ in a National forest in SW South Dakota ~ and sometimes beyond.

More yellow wildflowers have appeared since last weekend; amazing! Here's the threadleaf musineon (carrot family), growing along Bethlehem Rd. in the NE Hills, at the base of a Ponderosa pine.
Last year the silver bladderpod (mustard family) was pretty scarce, unlike this year. It's now growing fairly abundantly in the So. Black Hills area.
This is the best-looking lambstongue groundsel I've seen in the past three years. Before, the petals have always been eaten off by who knows what. I found this in the So. Hills area also.
