Mellow Yellows

                   Hello everyone,
               It is still hot and sunny here and I am
                  hoping for some rain soon but hopefully
                not on Saturday ~ my Garden Tea day.

                                                                          Last year I bought a few seedlings
                                                                           of double hollyhocks and this year
                                                                           they are blooming.
                                                                        I am in love with this mellow yellow one.

                                                                    They are planted by the conservatory
                                                                    in the boathouse, so we can enjoy
                                                                    them inside and out.

                                              Yellow roses,dahlias and hollyhocks.

                         Linger and enjoy a cup of tea
                             from one of my yellow teacups.

                         I have been working on getting
                        ready for the tea party and will
                    share photos with you later.

                          Have a lovely day!

Peek-a-boo, we see you! Lovely pictures, Carolyn. Your yellows are just beautiful. I had been away on a break for three weeks and got just back. Yes, we do need some rain. Such a fine Summer for the beach! Have a lovely day.

Beautiful hollyhocks and roses. They don't seem to have a mark or nibble.

So cheery! Yellow is perfect for August. And so perfect to be able to see them from both inside and out. I hope the weather is perfect for your tea too! ;0)

Stunning yellow hollyhocks and roses. I tried hollyhocks one year and they were covered and devoured by bugs so I gave up on them.
