    Today is very grey and I need a bit of sunshine. So I found some yellow blooms from March through August. They're like sunshine to me. :D

    Yellow really helps when the day's grey.

    What a nice batch of yollowness today! I just lookled my eyes right out of my head at these.
    That ranunculus was one of the special one for me. I enjoyed seeing the insects too, along with the Sedum and Oregano foto's.

    Yep...all in all, a very nice bunch of yellow.

    Thank you for liking the yellow. :D

    Eileen, the azalea shown is mine, but still lives at my mother's. :D They are deciduous and have the loveliest fragrance. I believe it's some sort of wild form that sprouted from a root another azalea was grafted on.

    Droopy it sounds as though you and I may have the same azalea then. Mine just appeared one year. I did have another azalea in that spot but it died never to return so maybe this one came from the root stock. :-? It's certainly a lovely addition to my garden. :-D

    I love yellow too...it is so cheerful! My favorite today has to be your Ranunculus, how beautiful! How large is the bloom?

    Thank you all for liking my "Sun replacement". :D

    It's nearing two inches across when it's properly developed, Netty. And it blooms for a rather long time too. The name's a tongue breaker: Ranunculus constantinopolitanus 'Plenus' (Constantine Buttercup)
