They Call Me Mellow Yellow

I am continuing to colour code my blog posts this week in sync with Poppytalk's Summer Colours week. Yellow is a lovely choice for today because there is no sunshine here at all.  All of these cheerful subjects will take its place.

My daylilies must have known about 'Yellow' day.  The first summer bloom opened this morning. What lovely timing.

1. One of the books in Emma's summer book stack.
2. Daylily - yellow is not my favourite colour in the garden but this soft, lemony yellow is perfection.
3. Buttercups
4. Shasta Daisy
5. Grape tomato blossoms
6. 'Pineapple' tomato blossoms - I cannot wait to see the fruit!
7. Yellow clematis tangutica - Gorgeous but highly invasive.
8. Gaillardia - Gallo Peach Blanket
9. Dandelion - so maligned yet really quite beautiful close up.
10. Heron and Canada Geese with reflection from the street light taken last night when Emma, Meeko and I went for a walk with the mosquitoes.  The photo is not super sharp because I took it at dusk but I couldn't resist including it.

Wishing you a sunshiny day!

Friends participating in the Poppytalk Summer Colours week include:  Sonia, Margie and Geninne.
Have a look!

    1. Yellow is Chloé's favourite colour. Her bedroom was sunshine yellow for a long time but now is electric lime green. She has always loved bright colours.

      I'm glad my ID was correct! :)

    1. Thanks Margie. I was lucky. I was concentrating on taking a photo of the heron when the geese swam into view.

  6. So glad you did include the last photo! Even if you did get a few mosquito bites, I think it was worth it, just for that lovely shot!
    P.S. Every time I see buttercups, I want to put them under my chin, like when I was a kid and ask someone, "Well, do I like butter?" (so weird) Do you remember that little "game" ?

    1. I definitely did the buttercup under the chin thing when I was younger. I just found out since having Meeko that buttercups are toxic, so good thing we didn't try to eat them when we were young!
