Happy May Day or Beltane



One bunch of unknown yellow flowers...
And another bunch of unknown yellow flowers 



 And how about some purple flowers too!
So the first ones (as I drove past slowly) are slightly daisy shaped, so won't look like that page in Petersons'.  Maybe they are tame and not a wildflower.

The second group, 2 shots but the wind was blowing so few are in focus...are reminding me of the St. Johnswort.  What do you think?

Purple?

Rabbit Rabbit, for those who want an extra furry ounce of luck for today and all month long.

When identifying flowers the number of petals each flower has is important. Your yellow mystery flower has four petals, not five, so it can't be St. John's wort (which blooms later in the year). The mystery flower's four petals and habit mark it as a mustard. I'm not a good enough botanist to tell you which specific one. There are a number of mustard species. My grandmother used to harvest "creasey" greens from the fields in early spring.
