    Default Bush ID?

    Anyone know what this bush with yellow flowers on it is? It grows about 6ft tall along Bear Creek south of Austin. The bees have been working it for a few weeks now.

    Don't beat around the bush... although that's better than beating the bushes...

    Could be what we call "yellow bell" round here. They have just started to bud out and is one of the first to do so after the daffodils appear. Not sure of the technical scientific name. Maybe this helps
