I don't grow yellow flowers in the summer as a rule but I have put this cheery little pot on the doorstep to make the postman smile. He is a melancholy man because, as he explained to me when I signed for a parcel, he needs his job to pay for his daughter's eBay addiction. I felt his pain.
I'm like you with yellow in the garden - for me, yellow is a spring colour but I have a bit of yellow in a mixed hanging basket. Does gold count as yellow - I love Rudbeckia which come into their own in the autumn. I hope the postman appreciates your kindness. Luckily I don't have an ebay addiction.ReplyDelete
It is my ambition to have an autumn garden full of gold tones but unfortunately the Evil Kingdom of Slugs has beaten me. Perhaps this is the year!ReplyDelete
Some yellows are fine in my book (daffodils, sunflowers, rudbeckias, primroses), others are not (forsythia). Your pot is very pretty. Has the postman noticed?ReplyDelete
I love yellow flowers but I don't like them mixed up with the pinks and blues of my June border. If I had a bigger garden they could be separated and I could enjoy nasturtium and poppies and sunflowers. I would still give marigolds a miss.ReplyDelete
I have a yellowish Rose - Whisky Mac is the name - smells divine.ReplyDelete
