Shades of Yellow at the End of Summer


Aren’t these just the coolest little flowers/buds? I think this is called tansy but I’m not sure.

With Autumn just around the corner, I’m thinking about all the glorious warm shades to come, including golds and yellows. It’s not here yet though in Interior BC, just a lot of dry, parched grass.

 We need rain, so badly. It hasn’t rained except for a few drops, for over two months. 😦

Has Autumn’s palette arrived where you are? 

 I never tire of  Fall’s feast of color. Bring it on! 🙂

  1. The photo of tansy is very interesting, They have the fall colors. We do need rain.

  2. We’ve been short of rain for a while but we had months of rain and snow preceding this short while. So far, we are kind of okay. I’m a summer person but surely this has been a weird one. The tansy is wonderfully bright and cheery.

  3. Those look like little yellow pom poms. So pretty. Our colors have started but we need rain also.
    You cold paint a few autumn leaves Geraldine…hint hint they would be easy because you love autumn hint hint.

  4. Yes, that is tansy. Does it grow wild there?

  5. Aren’t these buds cute, and such a vivd yellow. Here the leaves are turning. They are getting to look like fall definitely. Last night it got to 5 degrees I think. And it is invigorating I think. I hope you will also have a lovely fall when it comes.

  6. We do get the most stunning crimson, golden, orange, but not yet…end of Sept beginning of Oct ifyou’re lucky ’til Nov, but usually we get our first snow storm in Nov, so will see…the yellow here is glorious

    and yes ps my son is 24 🙂

  7. not much autumn colors where I am but I always thought yellow is such a cheerful color that it need not be seen in autumn to be enjoy.
    have a lovely day.

  8. Hi Joe, I hope some of that sky out there IS rain clouds and not just smoke from the fires. 😦

    Hi Sue, I’d say you are in the majority, being a summer lover. I love all the seasons actually just not the intense heat. Give me a snow storm any day! 😉

    Hi Teri, I’ll inspire you and you inspire me, ok friend! BTW, speakin of inspiration, I’m still waiting to hear that menu update!

    Hi SandyL, I always rely on your plant expertise for names Sandy, thank you. I guessed right this time, hooray!

    Hi Ashok, Welcome to MPP and thanks so much.

    Hi Lorraine, Quebec, a province I’ve never visited but it certainly looks beautiful in pics. Your pics too. Thanks for the clarification re: your son. He’s a lucky guy to have you for a mom. 🙂

    Hi Brenda, Sounds like the Prairies are continuing with the strange weather that’s been happening there all summer. It’s been weird weather here in BC too. Very cool in May and June and 35C yesterday, a scorcher, along with the fires finally starting. So sad. 😦

    Hi Lissa, The Eastern states have such glorious fall colors. I remember when I was living in Toronto, hearing about the bus tours to enjoy the foliage along the Eastern coast. Hope you’ll share lots of pics when the colors are at their peak.

    Happy Week and thanks so much for stopping by, G 🙂

  9. How amazing. They look like they’re handcrafted. Sorry to hear abot your lack of rain. I think it’s becoming a world wide problem. I’m looking forward to hearing about your beautiful autumn colours.
