The vivid yellow from this Common Tansy can be seen from quite a distance and satisfies my love of color. Interesting to note strong Tansy tea has been recommended as a garden insecticide. Obviously the Hover fly and the Bee don’t realize this, but I suspect helping pollinate isn’t dangerous. 

Colorful and deadly
