A Bit of Yellow

                                                                            Hello everyone,
                                                  Yesterday, when I was touring around the
                                                  garden ,I found a few yellow lupines blooming in
                                                  the back of one of the beds so I picked them for
                                                  my little bouquet. These were new seedlings so
                                                 they put on a late show this year.

                                                      Did you notice that the double yellow hollyhocks
                                                      are still blooming too?

                                                       Yellow lupines seem to be a bit uncommon in the wild here.
                                                       so I plant them from seeds or pick up seedlings when I find them.

   Love this!

                                   I enjoyed some time with my camera
                                             yesterday before my husband tore me away
                                         to go for lunch in the charming town of 

                                                Today, I enjoyed a day out with
                                                          a friend and tomorrow it is a
                                                         day out with another friend.....
                                                         I am loving have a few lazy days
                                                         before summer ends.

                                                           Hope you have a lovely long weekend!

Beautiful! I love both the lupines and hollyhocks. And the yellow! Very soft and sweet. I have some yellow rudbekia's and some black eyed susan's but they are all more gold in color. I think I may need to add some new flowers into my gardens!




Tão bom desfrutar de suas fotos, amo todas as porcelanas e flores.
Seu chá vintagem ficou lindo, como tudo que prepara. Bom descanso. Amanhã eu estarei reunindo amigas para um Reencontro, estou ansiosa e feliz.
Bom final de semana.

Lovely images. I'd like to be napping right there in the wicker chair with the comfy pillows, Carolyn. Enjoy your day.

A touch of yellow is so cheery in the garden. I love yellow Lupines! Had one at my previous home for quite a few years, but as Lupines sometimes do it finally didn't come back. Gorgeous dishes and I love your double Hollyhock as well!
