Bits of sunshine on a cloudy day…



Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but
to add color to my sunset sky. ~Rabindranath Tagore

    Glorious yellows, I particularly like the Hemerocallis, which one is it?

    The “sea” of rudbeckia is just stunning! I love the photo. It’s true… your yellow blooms are little spots of sunshine.

    Thank you Zoe. I think that daylilly is called “Happy Returns”. Suits it, doesn’t it?

    Your welcome Tina, we were have a cloudy morning and I thought how cheerful these blooms made it.

    I love yellow Deb. Zinnias, dahlias etc…It’s a happy color.

    Thank you Cindy. It does look like a sea of Rubeckia. I’m glad you enjoyed the sunshine.

    I’m glad you are lovin the yellow Jean. I aim to please. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    That’s how I feel Anna. It lifts the spirit to see such happy flowers.

    Thanks Mom. I hope you enjoyed my bit of sunshine on a cloudy day.

    Love all the yellows! Of course, yellow is my favovorite color in the garden, with some red mixed in. Your rudbeckia’s are really pretty (and THEY are my favorite flower!) and I love your marigolds! We have such problems with spider mites here on our marigolds.
    Have a great gardening weekend!

    It seems I always get to your blog after you already have 10+ comments! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the black-eyed susans. They are one of my all time favorites. I really enjoyed the theme this post followed today. Very nice. It would make a nice slide show for a screen saver!

    I know you love Rudbeckias Linda, they are the header for your blog. ๐Ÿ™‚ They are a great summer flower. Yellow and Red is a great combo in the garden. I haven’t seen any spider mites on the marigolds but they can be a problem. I’m glad you enjoyed my little bit of sunshine. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks Susie. They are cheerful on a cloudy day.

    LOL Cindy, better late than never. I’m glad you enjoyed my post today. It would be a nice screensaver, great idea!

    I just love yellow in the garden. It is so cheery and bright esp. in the winter which is why I always plant yellow pansies and snapdragons in the fall.

    Fabulous
    They really are lovely – I often hesitate about using yellow – but the rudbeckias look particularly stunning en mass like that

    Thanks for visiting Jan. Yellow is a happy color in the garden. It really contrasts well with purples too.

    I’m glad you enjoyed the bits of sunshine Karen. I think yellow is a wonderful complement to many colors in the garden, but I guess it could be overused.

    ‘Happy Returns’ is my favorite yellow Daylily. Your photos are a jolt of energy!

    Thanks MMD. I like it because it reblooms again later in the summer.
