I don't have a lot of yellow flowers in the garden, but I've got a few.
Got this lantana for a great price. I think I've had every color of lantana, but never had yellow until now.
The allamanda is pretty, trying to find some sun next to the Giant White Birds of Paradise.
I have some yellow (non-native) milkweed, but it's not blooming now. That would be due to the aphids I got tired of picking off...
Sometimes I buy grocery store flowers in - yellow!
And sometimes I find yellow wildflowers.
Oh, almost forgot the marigolds. There's an old medieval legend that says if you want to attract fairies to your garden - plant marigolds.
Hey - I think it worked! :)
Here's a close-up of that pretty Zebra Longwing, without the fairy lights.
I finally got a couple of photos of the Giant Swallowtail. I've been chasing her around the garden for weeks trying to get a shot, but she rarely sits still.
I was happy she slowed down a bit and she didn't seem to mind me getting right next to her.
Here it shows more of the yellow on the underside.
Okay, last pic of this beauty. I get so excited to capture something I've never photographed before. Wonder what photographic model the universe will provide next!
