yellow flowers









Forget red. Let's talk about yellow. Yellow flowers. These beauties from Bow Street Flowers are making me crazy (in a good way). Yellow flowers have been my new love this summer. (And don't they look nice with the pink flowers?)

Roses, ranunculus, dahlias that look like honeycombs, dahlias that look like a lions mane, mimosas that smell like Provence.  Where are the words to express how happy they make me?


It is barely autumn, but I am already dreading the shorter days, early darkness. I am a night owl, and must work on keeping farmer's hours, especially now that I am painting and need all the light I can get.

However a touch of crispness in the air, bins filled with apples, and the leaves turning from green to rust, burgundy, orange, and yellow signal my favorite season, autumn. (Although in April my favorite season might be spring.)

I'm taking my flowers to the country.
Enjoy your weekend!

    1. She's gifted. She manages both classic beauty and wonderfully surprising things in her arrangements. Poetry in a vase.

  8. These are simply gorgeous! There is something about yellow and pink that I just adore! I too get tired of the shorter daylight. Here in the winter it gets dark by 4:30 in the afternoon!

    1. I'm thinking of yellow in a whole new way.
      I dread those dusk at 4:00 days.

  9. Jen... The flowers bring a skip to the heart and are catch my breath beautiful! For some reason I have gravitated to shades of yellow lately... I want to saturate my walls with a hint of yellow in a color called "Sugar Cookie" ...it's suggestion of sunshine is lovely. I am eager for Fall even though the days are shorter... Bring on the cool, crisp mornings... 80-90+ degree days goodbye! Hope you have a pleasant week! Susan
