|Ah yes- the sky before our massive storms last week- eerie!|
|....but not a dissimilar colour to this osteospernum...|
The orangey yellow of courgettes of courgettes is very distinctive of the squash family
But tomato flowers are of a more lemony yellow
And this type of sulphurous yellow seems popular with hoverflies, who are, of course, good at eating aphids and pollinating
A stamen (or pistil?) of an evening primrose flower is quite architectural when seen close-up. And of the purest yellow...
Oranges are well represented at the plot too- this pompom dahlia is rather cheeky and gorgeous
And the bean flowers are pretty as well as potentially productive
I'm a big fan of nasturtiums- I just love them. To look at. To eat. Self seed. What's not to like...
Is it just me or does this carrot look like it is in the throws of giving birth to a baby carrot?
It's a shame to see these new yellow signs popping up around the site - but we have had widespread thefts on an industrial scale. I think the signs are too small- see the hand as a scale. More on the thefts some other time....sigh....
But on a nicer note - we have retained some of these "weeds"- ragwort- because they are feeding these lovely orange and black caterpillars....
...of the cinnabar moth.... and in a few weeks we will see the deep red and black of that lovely moth.
Enjoy the oranges and lemons all around your plot or garden at this time of year!
