Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Yellow or Orange Flowers

Justin Beaver and Manny spent a week together in Maui, Hawaii. They exchanged gifts each buying the other a frangipani, as plumeria are known in Australia where Justin lives with Mr. and Mrs. Eternal Traveler.  Justin will probably model his frangipani on his own blog, The Adventures of Justin Beaver. Manny writes intermittently on his blog, Manny’s Blog, and when his mood strikes. He tends to be a little jealous of Justin, but not so jealous that he didn’t wear his frangipani everywhere. I haven’t been able to take it from him yet, and it’s getting rather bent due to all his rambunctiousness.Manny's FrangipaniA year ago I drove home from Three Rivers, CA, rounded the corner and these pieces of California’s Gold, thousands of poppies shimmering in the mid-morning sun nearly stopped my heart. I passed them, stopped the car, and walked back along the highway to take their pictures. Yellow poppy2The poppy is the state flower, and they grow wild. We have them  growing in our driveway. They do not seemed bothered that we drive over them. Yellow poppyThese poppies seemed immune to the drought.Yellow RoseI’m pretty sure these are roses, but they are tiny. They grow along our fence wildly abundant in the early spring. Soon they dry up and look ugly and unkept.  There are so many blossoms, it’s hard to pick them all off.Yellow flower3I close with this flower from Kauai, I think is a daffodil. I liked its translucence even though I think it is a little blurry.

Thanks, Cee, for a chance to show off a few of my yellow flower pictures. For more pictures visit Cee.

Have a wonderful week.

  1. When we lived in Mississippi (zone 8/7!) I grew CA poppies in my garden. Visited there last October and saw the burned-down version of that great house. Never once thought of digging up a clump of poppies for myself, here…Hmm…
    Come to think of it, that part of the gardens was probably grown up in tree roots…
    They are glorious during sundown, though. Miss ’em!

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
