Bloomin' Tuesday!

I am posting all yellow this week because we haven't seen a lot of sunshine this week.

I'm not sure what this plant is but I really like the leaves.

All of these pictures were taken at the Secret Garden Tour.
Our gardens aren't doing so well this year. I really haven't had the time to take care of them the way I normally do.

I hope these pictures bring you a little sunshine.

Sunflowers are one of my favorites to take pictures of.

Lovely sunshine colors. I want to say that first plant is some type of Helenium or Helianthus. Wish I could be more helpful. :) I love the variegated foliage on it!

Very pretty...
I also love the leaves of that one plant.
If you ever find out what it is, let us know.

Great shades of yellow. Yellow is our most prevalent color in the desert, and although I don't need more in my garden, I do like looking at other types of yellow flowers, especially surrounded with green!

Those leaves in the top photos are really beautiful -- as are the flowers! Love the color yellow in a garden.

Laurie, your 'yellow' post is so pretty-we can all use some sunshine like this. Of course you haven't had time to take care of your garden this year. Some times we do what we have to and the rest has to slide. It will be there for you next year so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

What great yellow flowers! Yellow always makes such a bright cheery flower! I really like that sunflower, so pretty. I also like those variegated foliage on that one flower, very nice!
Perfect pictures for blooming Tuesday!
Love, Ann

My Grampa would've loved seeing all this yellow. He loved flowers and he loved yellow :)

Sooo pretty - I love the yellow. Your photography is always stunning - you should make a coffee-table book of blooms!

I'm having a contest!!

Thank you for the 'sunshine'. It's still somewhat gloomy here, but the rain has stopped. I am so iterested in the flower you show that has the variegated leaves. It looks like it is from the cosmos family maybe?
