A Yellow Palette


So, yesterday I featured all the lavender flowers I saw at the Desert Botanical Garden and today I'm showing all the yellow I saw.  Above are some blooms on the Brittlebush plant.  Brittlebush grows everywhere in the desert so at this time of year, you can see yellow in every direction.


I found a small patch of yellow and purple pansies in a corner of the herb garden.  Pansies are such cheery flowers.


And, a favorite of mine, the Mexican Sunflower plant.  It gets as big as a tree and when it blooms, it has these big yellow flowers all over it.


It was blooming like crazy when I was there last Saturday.


Needless to say, the bees enjoy a taste of the Mexican Sunflowers too!

We left just before the yellows went out but we could feel the spring ready to go.
