    Lovely sunshine flowers.

  2. So cheerful! I love yellow, especially with compliments of white flowers and silver foliage.

    Yellow! Yellow post! I love it and your flowers and photos are lovely.
    Thanks for a nice wake up!

  5. Full of spring cheer, and lovely to see that you included equally beautiful images of lowly dandelions and celandines too. Yellow always seem to be a bee magnet …..

    • I normally avoid yellow in my plans, but I’ve no idea why when I like so many individual plants that are yellow. I do love to see carpets of dandelions on the verges at this time of year.

    I think if a plant hunter discovered the dandelion with its herbal qualities in both the leaves and roots, its ability to survive drought, grow in any conditions, while providing a good source of nectar and pollen for the bees, it would sell like hot cakes!
