Fifty Shades of Yellow!

Crazy Daffodil ... Rip van Winkle

Marsh Marigolds at the edge of my pond
Golden Crocus all around

Winter Aconites holding on for the Spring

Cowslips on the bank by my pond

Primroses in my woodland glade

Iris winogradowii - paler than the earlier danfordiae

Celandine with bronze leaves ... Brazen Hussy

Crocus Cream Beauty

My garden goes through phases of colour.  Mid March seems to be its yellow phase!  Even the butterflies are on message, with Brimstones fluttering by whenever the sun appears.  Sadly my photography skills are not good enough to cope with the speed at which they move.  Flowers are easier ... they sit still!


  1. Mine seems to be all yellow too at the moment, although I can spot some blue just starting to appear too.

    1. I believe it is to do with the wavelengths most easily detected by the particular insects that are about at this time of year.
