Can you load a higher resolution pic? It looks kind of like a yarrow to me, but hard to tell with the small picture.

Sorry I copied the wrong image ;I have changed it . Thanks :)

I looked up Aster but I don't think we have that in our area. This was taken by the road allowance, but it is in the pasture and now the hay field . Smells a little like clover .

The pictures I posted were the road allowance on the lease road, which the oilfield company is supposed to spray NOT my pasture :p However I did kill everything there with 24d .

I took a sample into my nutritionist and you were dead on Silver it is not a noxious weed and is safe for human and animal consumption.

Thanks again for all of your help everyone . :tiphat:

We have the scariest clouds over us right now and are under sever storm watch again ,what a flippen surprise .. :roll:

Flowers do look very similar... I've seen it- but wasn't sure what it was called...Except this year I've seen flowers I've never seen before....

I was thinking about these flowers more today-- and I remembered these were the ones that my Grandmother used to go down along the creek pools to pick- and liked to put in bowl on the table because of the pleasant smell they had...And she called them wild "babies breath's"...
