SHINY YELLOW FLOWERS AND A PONTIAC

Normally, by this time of year, we’d have all kind of yellow flowers blooming in the gardens. But the chilliness and constant rain since March has slowed down the arrival of the flowers — and apparently stopped some completely. I could not find a single bud on the rose bushes. Nor are any day lilies in bloom, although I’m sure they will arrive … albeit late.

So all of these yellows are from previous years because the yellows just are not here up yet — except for the early daffodils, a couple of tulips, and the ever present forsythia.

And here’s to a fabulous weekend coming up! We deserve at least one really love one, don’t we?

  7. Yellow is always a good bright colour on a photo, no matter how old the photos are. Just saying, I have a bed of irises which flower every year and this year I only have one flower, the rest just remained leaves – strange.

  9. After a crazy snow winter and very wet spring (so unusual for Utah), May was one of the driest on record. It’s been really nice. πŸ™‚ I hope you have as lovely a weekend as your flower pictures. Thanks for joining the challenge!
