Mosaic Monday - Glowing Yellow Flowers



Have you ever noticed how yellow flowers seem to glow on overcast days and once the sun has gone down?
From the left, top row:  coreopsis 'Creme Brulee', a simple dandelion, heliopsis
Middle row:  daylily 'Happy Returns', iris pallida, a pastel hollyhock
Bottom:  sunflower, daylily 'Junebug', marsh marigold
Creating a mosaic is a good way to show several flowers at once and all of the above except the hollyhock are in my gardens.  Well, the dandelion was likely in the lawn but when you view one from this angle, I think they're rather pretty.
Visit Mary, the host of Mosaic Monday each week at Little Red House  to see what other bloggers have created.

  10. What a delightfully SUNNY mosaic of yellow blossoms today! Methinks the participants of Mellow Yellow Monday would enjoy it too. Thanks so much for visiting my Shadow Mosaic at Sacred Ruminations earlier. I do so enjoy your lovely photographs and mosaics and appreciate you identifying the flowers. I learn ... bit by bit. Happy Mosaic Monday ;-)
    Hugs and blessings,

  15. Yellow flowers are just cheerful! I have always loved dandelions and used to joke that i would use them in my wedding bouquet. Well I didn't really, but my little sister ran out and found one and brought it in and tucked it in among the roses and I walked down the isle with it.
