[puma-news] Yellow sweet clover

This member of the Fabaceae, or pea, family, is the scraggley plant
that is now blooming along Magnolia Road. It is alien, but is greatly
appreciated by bees. It has a white flowered version as well, Melilotus
alba, which mingles with Melilotus officinale, the yellow flowered
plant. So far, it seems to be restricting its location to roadside.
