Yellow happiness

Among them is our neighbor from across the street whom I met last weekend running errands and she stopped to thank me for all the green leaves and flowers on display. The other species that seems to be particularly happy about the mustard flowers are pollinating insects of all kinds. It is rare that no bees, hooverflies or even bumblebees surround the yellow blossoms.
