Friday Flowers

I thought we'd go all mellow yellow today.

I'll start with a Lily, taken in my garden last month.

While I'm in the garden, this next one has got some yellow in it.

I think it's a Nemesia of some sort. I love the red and yellow.

Back out in the outdoors, a cheery flower that seems to grow in any grass, or lawn.


A wet day when I took this next one.

 Common Bird's-foot Trefoil.

And to finish, back in the garden, and something to hopefully bring some sunshine where it's needed.


Hope the sun shines where you are; and have a good weekend.


  1. Brightened a Friday morning.....thanks.

  2. Flower are always nice.
    Thank you for sharing, and yourself have a good weekend. Anna :)

  3. Again...they're all beautiful. My personal favorites are the second image (so, so pretty) and the sunflower. What an interesting perspective of that one.

  4. These are so lovely and cheery. I love that sunflower best.

  5. Freedom friday best night of the week
    again. Hurrah. Bet the birdies will make a great feast of your sunflower seeds. Have you grown many sunflowers Keith or just the one?

  6. Just what I needed to cheer me up - lovely flowers.

  8. i SO wish i could trade some of our heat and sun for some of your rain. these are beautiful. nice to see lush growth. :)

    Hilary, thank you. I love Sunflowers; always so cheery.

    Debbie, I had quite a few Sunflowers, but a big green caterpillar ate most of them. I've got four left, so the birds should enjoy the rest.

    Thanks John. Hope you're well.

    Thank you Bob. Such a cheerful colour I think.

    Theresa, we could do with a bit more sun over here. Not too much though lol

    Thank you Elizabeth. I think you have all our sun allocation over there lol
