These mustards pass muster!

Lots of plants in the Mustard family (Brassicaceae) blooming now. Many are subtle, all are interesting. (Especially to me, as I continue to learn a thing or two about plants.) The top photo shows Tansy Mustard (Descurainia pinnata). Tiny yellow flowers, intricate leaves. The 2nd is my favorite mustard, namely Lace Pod Mustard (Thysanocarpus curvipes). Take a closer look at the seed pods. They are really beautiful. 

Many thanks to Ned for continuing to work with me on the point and shoot. (I point, he shoots.)
