Bearded


Bearded Clover (Trifolium barbigerum), Bodega Head, 19 April 2017

P.S.  Check out the interesting color patterns on this clover's leaflets (on the left-hand side of the photo).  I'm intrigued by the markings, so I did a quick search into what's known about the patterning.  It sounds like they're formally called "anthocyanin leaf markings" and they're known to be linked to certain genes.
