  1. Kay G- the yellow flower before the rose is yellow butterfly weed. I do not think the first picture is Jerusalem Artichoke, which is a big coarse, meadowland plant. This pictured plant is more delicate-

  4. They say yellow is what attracts the beasties and therefore makes the world go round.
    Those flowers look great!

    1. Richard took all these photos, except for the sunflower in my header photo and the close up of the rose, I took those!

    2. The rose was the best picture!

  5. I am back looking at blogs and came to see how you are.
    I tried for ages to identify the Yellow Flower at Rockdale River Trail. I should have read Betsy's comment first!

    1. Hello John!
      So nice to see you here! Hope you are feeling better these days!
      Betsy has such a great blog, if you get the chance, go and look at her posts, she is a very good writer.
      John, I think of you every single time I admire a beech tree now, you correctly identified it for me. Thank YOU!

  6. While yellow is not my absolute favorite, it's lovely when it's a flower. Today i will look for other examples of yellow that can make me smile.

  7. Yellow is such a cheerful color. Glad you have so much of it around to see and enjoy.

    1. I realized that most of the flowers that I enjoyed in June were mostly yellow, so I shared them with you all!! xx

  8. Lovely! I think the Rockdale yellow flower is a type of milkweed, probably the butterfly milkweed.

    1. Butterfly milkweed, thank you! The bees were loving it too!
      It was the only one that we saw there, it was just beside the trail, we were happy to see it.

  9. They are all beautiful, Kay. Yellow is one of my favourite colours in the garden. It's so cheerful and uplifting.

    1. We have a lot of yellow flowers around just now and there is something about yellow that draws your attention. Of course, I love all the colors of the flowers, honestly.
      Hope your garden is coming along nicely now. :-)

  10. The 'unknown' yellow flower is the yellow form of the usually orange butterfly milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa).
    The first flower, based on what look like 6 leaves around the stem, may be Coreopsis major (Greater tickweed)

    1. Hey Joan!
      Thank you so much for your visit and identifying these flowers for me.
      You know, the butterfly milkweek WAS orange but for some reason, came out yellow in this photo! I forgot all about how orange it was until I read your comment! Also, the mushroom was really orange too, but it also looks yellow!
      So I suppose, I should change my post title to "Yellow And Some Orange" to be strictly correct!
      Richard THOUGHT that the first flower might be some kind of Coreopsis but he wasn't sure (he is better about plants than I am!)

  11. We are leaving purple, strongly into pink, with yellow yet to come. I find it so interesting how the colors have their own time in the spring/summer. It is too cold and windy on my hill for coreopsis or evening primrose, but I do love them. Beautiful, cheerful, colorful post!

    1. Hey Nan!
      I was so excited to identify the evening primrose, it has such a sweet scent!
      I saw this same flower last year, but there were so FEW of them, in our severe heat from last year, but THIS year, with our cooler Spring and rain, we saw LOTS of them!!
      Thanks so much for your comment!

  12. It felt good to meander with you.

    I don't think they're Jerusalem artichokes. I've grown those for years and they are much more robust with more petals. Maybe those are one of your native sunflowers.

    Love,

    S

    1. Hello Sharon! Please come and meander with me anytime!

      Joan from her blog JSK is a great expert on the local plant life, and she thinks it is Coreopsis Major. We are very lucky to have so many wildflowers, I love them! I know you love wildflowers too! (And birds, of course!!)

  13. Lovely post. My Aunt Jennie loved yellow. She even bought a yellow car not to mention yellow clothes. How I miss her!

    1. Thanks! And I hope these yellow colors brought back happy memories of your sweet Aunt Jennie. I love the image of her dressed in yellow in a yellow car, just a few words and I feel as if I know her! xx

  14. I think yellow might be my favourite colour... but I am quite fickle. When I look at a woodland in summer, I think green. When I look at a summer sky I think blue. And I like mauve. And red, orange, indigo and violet! :)
    Lovely photos.

    1. Oh Jenny, I know just what you mean. I asked my nephew what was his favorite color. "Blue" he said, with great feeling.
      "No, GREEN, that is my favorite!", he then said. "Wait, I really love red and yellow..and...oh, I love ALL the colors!" And I had to laugh since I am exactly the same way! All the colors of the rainbow, I appreciate them all. xx

    2. Well, I would actually rather be Clint Eastwood, but I am not a good enough writer to express a knowing look in words. Besides, Arlynda would tell you that I talk way too much in real life. Sigh.

    3. You think YOU talk too much? HA! Don't ask my husband about me!! :-)

    1. Yay for our love for yellow flowers! And did you notice that one of my yellow flowers photo, I picked it for you to see because it had a few blue flowers scattered there at the back! GREY SKIES ARE GONNA CLEAR UP< PUT ON A HAPPY FACE!! (That's from a song, don't you know!)

  17. Yellow is the most uplifting of colours. It's impossible to imagine, for example, someone being miserable whilst wearing a yellow dress (actually that's not quite accurate I should be pretty miserable if I were to have to wear a yellow dress).

  18. I think you might cause some great smiles if you walked around in a pretty yellow dress.

  19. I have a lovely yellow rose bush and I love all yellow..except dandelions!

    1. Thanks, Kay. I know you have some beautiful yellow flowers too. I am remembering your header photo of the bright yellow flowers, the one that I told you that one in the middle seemed to be in a shape of a heart, remember? :-)
