Today's Flowers & Mellow Yellow

Last Wednesday and Thursday were beautiful spring days. In the 70’s, and nary a cloud to be seen. Friday was in the 80’s and a bit too warm for my liking for April. I had a couple of appointments in the morning, met a friend for lunch and did a bunch of errands. I thought about going to my favorite flower picture spots, but I wasn’t dressed for crawling around to get flower pictures, so I decided to pass. The weather forecast for Saturday was for 60’s and I figured that would be just fine. Well, so much for weather forecasts. It never got out of the 40’s, wind chill was in the upper 30’s, it was misting off and on, and this wuss decided not to sally forth. After all, the weather was supposed to be better today. Ha Today has been showers and occasional thunder and lightning.

All of that is a long story to say that these flower pictures were taken last week. These daffodils were at Sunken Gardens. Since they are yellow, I’m cross posting in the Mellow Yellow meme also.

I love both varieties but the first one is particularly interesting with its elaborate shape but suttle colour. Great shots of these beauties too.

Daffodils are always a favorite of mine, that yellow is soothing to me. Your photos are great and love the close-ups. Thank you very much for sharing them in Today's Flowers. Thank you also for visiting my blog, always appreciated. It got up to the low 90s today here in N. Virginia. Way too hot for me :)

Lovely spring daffodils. Beautiful colours, they're very mellow yellow! The daffodils are pretty much gone here now.

Hitting two birds in one stone is not too bad. What with a humorous long story to go with it? It dispels boredom! Beautiful flowers and the prosaic sentiments.
