Butter 'n Eggs are a fairly common flower of our roadsides and old fields.  It's the lower of two lips that usually has a splash of orange amid the yellow and white colors.  Plants may grow as tall as two feet but are often shorter, especially along roadsides.  The leaves are very linear and grass-like in appearance.
