It’s that time of year when thoughts turn to seed sowing, or at least to sorting out the seed packets and checking what needs to be dealt with when. There are visions, too, of new planting schemes – as in trying to remember where things are in the garden. With some plants you never do know. The Welsh poppies are complete vagabonds and can pitch up in the most unlikely quarters. Likewise the dandelions, the little gate-crashers. Needless to say, the garden must have plenty of yellow. Got to keep the bees, bugs and butterflies well fed. In the meantime, here’s a reprise of some of last summer’s best yellows.

Wow, Trish! I’ve seen Spring bees before, but never seen spring-ing bees – that’s just amazing!! E 🙂
That was a very chance shot, Emma. You can tell how pleased I was to find it in my camera – the bee says it all 🙂 🙂
Total admiration for your skills, Trish – and those of that attention seeking bee!!
Beautiful photos and subject matgter
Lovely set of images Tish.
Thanks, Brian. Can’t beat lots of yellow flowers.
Fabulous springing bee! Well done, Tish!
Thank you, Sue.
Brilliant first photo, Tish
Cheers, Ian. Am preening self.
It’s wonderful post 🌻 with
Many thanks, Amit.
Brilliant pictures. Even more brilliant because they are yellow, but you must have used a macro to get that close in on the bee. Truly fantastic shots.
Thank you, Marilyn. I think I only used the macro setting on my point and shoot. Sometimes it’s hit and miss. But sometimes it WORKS! Especially if I spend hours in the garden.
Haha… yes that springing bee is fabulous. And more Dyer’s chamomile. Odd that I don’t see Welsh poppies growing here, you would imagine the perfect climate for them in Cornwall. I saw loads in the lake district.
I’m surprised you don’t have Welsh poppies, Jude. I think mine came originally from my Aunt’s Exeter garden so they’re on the way to yours 🙂
Wonderful, Tish ! 🙂
Thank you, Beverly.
Glorious shots all, Tish. The yellows are wonderful and the bees are bee-utiful and bee-zy.
Definitely bee-zy, Janet 🐝🐝🐝 I was pleased to see bumble bees out and about the other day. Seemed extraordinary after all our freezing temps.
Beautiful yellows, Tish. I think the dandelion is the ‘Dennis The Menace’ of flower weeds. I do live to see them though.
I do try to love dandelions – says she who yesterday spent a good hour at the allotment in high wind and drizzle hoicking them out of the paths. I know they’re so good for us too – roots and leaves, and good for the soil. And they make great photos. And as you say, they are cheery to look at. Oh, the chopped logic!
Fabulous yellow, Tish! That bee looks magnetised 🙂 🙂 My favourite is always those oriental poppies.
Can’t beat a good poppy 🙂
Very bright and beautiful! And now I’ve got the hymn for an earworm.. 😀
Oops! Sorry about the earworm, Dries.
And now I’ve got it!
A post full of wows Tish 🙂 🙂
Well mega thanks for that, Brian: a post full of wows. What a great phrase 🙂
I’m not surprised bees jump for joy round at your patch Tish. Love that happy photo.
Nothing like a bit of bee-joy. Thanks, Pauline.
oh that first one – gorgeous. In fact they all are. Yellow is such a great colour, I wonder what Jude will be choosing next!
I’ve been wondering that too. For all round splendiferousness, yellow’s rather hard to follow, isn’t it.
All wonderful shots – I do like to see insects on flowers 🙂 But the opener is a stunner – brilliant capture!
Thank you, Sarah. You can tell I spend a lot of time standing around in the garden – in summer that is.
Beautiful phots! Yellow is an uplifting color.
Yellow does give one a boost, doesn’t it.
It really does!
Oh, the glory of those insects!
Didn’t they put on a fine show. There’s much to be said for having a fence to lean on 😉
Gorgeous images Tish 😍
Thanks, Su. The yellow is just beginning to happen in the garden this week. More reason to be cheerful.
