Spotted this out of the corner of my eye while riding along the bike path yesterday. I first learned about it two years ago but hadn't found one growing wild until now. Cleome Serrulata, aka "Rocky Mountain Bee Plant"

@KcTerry Cleome is a pretty flower. To see it growing in the wild, wow!

@GwenfarsGarden for sure! it was a nice surprise. Living in Colorado I thought I'd spot one sooner, but without flowers I could easily overlook it, even if I did come across one.

@KcTerry I've only seen it in gardens, and you never notice it until it flowers. Then you think, wow. Funny how some plants are just quiet until suddenly, ta da!
