You photograph those flowers so well! I love the varying shades of yellow in each one. Enjoy mellow yellow Monday!

Nice to see something bright and cheery on a Monday.

Annie said...

Love these varied shades of yellow, Joanne, most especially the buttery yellow of the second one. Is that perhaps the backside of a hybiscus? The vein reminds me of hybiscus.

Liz said...

Love them all. They are gorgeous!

They are gorgeous.

Happy MYM!

Lovely yellow blooms.

ps. The Blue Himalayan Poppy in your other blog is amazingly gorgeous. I've never seen this flower before.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Linnea, thank you and enjoy your MYM as well :)

Karen, yes it is :D thank you

Annie, you know what? I do not remember. I take so many photos at one time but it could very well be. Thank you so much.

Liz, aw, thank you so much.

Evelyn, thank you so much. That poppy is actually on this blog. I only have one blog but that particular shot is posted in several different spots. I was mesmerized when I first saw it. I had never seen it before either. It was a treat :) Thank you so much for visiting and commenting.

Now for mine, I like the outside of the yellow trumpet which reminds me of a pumpkin flower. I went down your side-bar and really like the image of your mother, Dorothy. Is she still with us? Where was the photo taken?

Cher, thank you so much.

Julie, No, my Mom passed away in 1994. That photo was taken in San Francisco on Mission Street near 29th. She was in her early 20's at the time which would have been around 1944 or so. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting.

Kim said...

Enjoyed the flowers! Haven't been around for a while, did you redo your website? I like it! :) Have a great week.

DoanLegacy said...

Gorgeous macro of these beautiful yellow shade flowers!

Beautiful yellow flowers. I was totally fascinated by the third and forth shot, simply gorgeous

RNSANE said...

Wonderful pictures...I chose some of the same flowers, Jo...actually, all my mellow yellows today were taken from our stroll through the Botannical Gardens. I'm trying to use some of my many photographs! You must have thousands.
