A perfect execution, Tish and example. I love this creamy shade of yellow. It’s very welcome on a dull day like this, and today is Jupiter’s day and Jupiter prefers “yellow” or “orange”. 🙂
Jupiter’s Day – now that has really cheered me up. Yellow and orange – also the third and second chakras respectively, and both about claiming one’s creative power. Way-hay!
Yes, the Thor’s Day 🙂 Thanks for the extra info, Tish. I forgot about the Sacral chakra 🙂 Brilliant.
Thank you, kind sir.
I love the varying shades and hues of yellow playing in the light! Really good shot.
It’s been grey and rainy here, so I greatly enjoyed this, Tish.
We have a few pink ones that the Missus brought back from Portugal a few years back. They have just finished flowering.
This is a beautiful image….perfect lighting…Janet
Looks very cozy on this dreary day. IS there nothing you don’t grow on your allotment? I tried glads once but found them hard work with all the staking etc.
In one of my fits of haphazard gardening, I accidentally grew these at the end of the runner beans row (double booked planting space), and so they didn’t seem to need staking, although it was hard to extract some of them from the beans’ twisty twiny grip.
I love that “double booked planting space” so often produces the best combinations!
Very cheerful Tish!
Love this special yellow and all that light on the gladioli…..
Enjoyed yor brilliant pic!
Thank you 🙂
I always like to guess whose post is which from Paula’s featured photos, Tish. I identified you today 🙂 Such lovely warmth! I did mine in two stages because as I galloped into town this morning I was thinking about Gilly’s beautiful haiku. I decided I could combine the two and, hey presto! 🙂
Yes, I can picture you galloping, Jo 🙂
Home made decorations 🙂 🙂
Tish this gladioli photo is great due to the back lighting. bringing out the golden warmth.
Thank you, Irene.
That’s lovely special! Very beautiful light.
What a lovely view and those flowers are just gorgeous Tish! You’ve captured them so well in the light. 🙂
You can have more sun if you want. We have enough. LOL!
Oooh, yes, Sonel, please send me a piece of your African sun 🙂
Sending …. > > > … 😆
I needed that. Thanks!
You’re most welcome.
Sunshine and happiness all in one. 😎
Such a lovely sunny yellow and beautifully backlit.
