March Was a Mellow Yellow Month


Yellow looks like daffodils
Yellow sounds like goldfinches
Yellow feels like the soft petals of a primrose
Yellow smells like honeysuckle
Yellow ...

Daffodils by the picket fence; honeysuckle on the arbor
Forsythia along Bluebell Creek (weeks earlier than last year.)
Forsythia x intermedia
Heuchera Havana
Cushion Moss
Primrose with yellow center
Primula vulgaris Primrose (3/24/12)

Pansies self-seeded in the driveway
Goldfinch wearing its yellow feathers (3/28/11)
Cedar Waxwing is a silky, shiny collection of brown, gray, and lemon-yellow
A flock of cedar waxwings visit the water dish (3/30/12)
The red tailed hawk looks golden in the bright sunlight.

March was a mellow yellow month. I wonder what color April will be?

Happy gardening!

Yellow is king in Spring. Lovely selection of yellows, Pam. I never see a waxwing and your bird images are wonderful.

Pam, Yellow is so cheerful for March...April is green...with all the bare spots greening up following the lawns... I adore the moss bird bath.

Hi Pam. What lovely yellows you are sporting in the garden now along with the pretty Goldfinch. The yellow primrose is so lovely and your forsythia is just loaded with blooms. Gorgeous!
Have a wonderful week.

March sure was mello yellow and way warm here in Ohio. Love the photos of the cedar waxwings.

Great post, Pam. I love that last shot of the hawk. They're such stately birds. And the cedar waxwings are so cool. Don't those little pansies/johnny jump-ups amaze you, growing in the most inhospitable places? So pretty.

Jane said...

Great post Pam! It's amazing just how much of one colour is out there if you look x

March was very yellow/blue for me. April is starting off quite pink with blossom and tulips flowering

Yellow is certainly the color of spring in my mind. The shot of your fence with daffodils and honeysuckle is enchanting. Wonderful post.

Enjoyed your mellow yellows :)

Casa Mariposa said...

March was yellow here, too. :o) I love all your yellow flowers. I've always wanted to see cedar waxwings. Lucky you!

Lovely Spring pics. Here in Ireland Spring has come early. Bluebells are already flowering in the woods and birds are nest building.

Cynthia Walker Pickens said...

What cheerful yellows!

I love yellow in late winter/early spring. It somehow seems like just what we need.

Bertie Bainbridge said...

Greetings Pam! Glorious to see these cheery spring images, hope to see lots more of the same. Your plump hawk is incredible!

Nell Jean said...

Yellow brings sunshine to the garden, you've a lot of sunshine in this post. Yellow roses and yellow daylilies are blooming here in April; spring came early.

Pam,

What a wonderful 'yellow' post. You have some great pictures here.

I hope you had a good winter. I found it went by fairly quickly and am so happy to be able to poke around the garden again.

I love primroses,violas and cedar waxwings. We don't get very many here, but it's really exciting when they arrive. Happy spring and happy Easter Pam.

I find it interesting how certain colors seem to dominate at certain times of year - yellow really says spring to me.

The Sage Butterfly said...

I love your images of yellow for March. You captured every spring yellow or gold so beautifully. I don't see the cedar waxwings very often, so it was nice to see them in your garden.
