Shades of yellow in October

14 comments


I always associate yellow flowers with Spring, the Narcissus, Primroses, Crocus and the like, yet today it was surprising to see these beauties all in bloom.

Bright yellow Marigolds in the manger baskets and blue pots in the front.

Begonias in a pot, being nibbled by a critter.

Very surprised to see one of a few Welsh Poppies flowering.

A couple of Roses.

Yellow Pyracantha berries … always the last to go after the red and orange ones.

and finally a Kniphofia decided to send up a flower.

Do other Goy folk find similar in their October gardens?

Lovely blog, and very surprising. Just one Welsh Poppy here, a lime coloured grass and Acer Sangu-kaku … no competition with your yellows!

Bright and cheerful blog, Shirley! We bought a kniphofia this late summer. No flowers but hoping next year we’ll see some. I’m liking the yellow pyracantha berries too. Just the orange and red ones around here in our garden and others.

Ha, ha Klahanie, those 'Rude Bakers' get around! The Roses have lots more buds waiting to open, a nice October surprise.

Sheila, you may recall that I try to plant quite a lot of yellow as Michael is colour blind and that is a colour he sees clearly. Mind you, anything red is just a darker shade of green to him ... :o(

Kate, I bet your Kniphofia will be flowering next year. I was determined to keep that Pyracantha going when the new fence panels were fitted as it was a cutting from my dear Mum's garden.

I haven't had a lot of yellow this year,Shirley,but I did buy a couple of packs of French Marigolds for wall baskets,which have been lovely,and still are. I do have a solitaty Bidens in a pot,which must have seeded itself from last year,so I left it in situ,as it has spread nicely.
Two yellow Berried Pyracantha in our long Border,one I planted as a gift for a neighbour,and are both looking lovely this year. The blackbirds are testing them out at the moment,which is unusual,as they are usually the last to go.Two reds,and one orange berried ,in the same border against the long wall ,so plenty of welcome colour to see out of the kitchen window.:o
I intend to plant Daffs in ad amongst that border,as the ones I did have over the years,have almost disappeared ?
Foxes,or Badgers maybe? I only found out we have Badgers earlier this week,as it's believed they are responsible for causing damage on the Bowlng green !
My neighbour has seen them many times,but he gets up around 5 .30 am most mornings ! I won't be,I can assure you ! lol xx

I love yellow in the garden as it helps to enhance my mood! You have a good selection there, Shirley.

I also have Welsh poppies in flower along with nasturtiums, Helenium, Rudbekia Helenianthum as well as a few dandelions and sow thistles.

They are very sunny and cheerfull aren't they ... I only have yellow Rudbeckias and they are in season, except they've all been eaten away and it's just the centres there now. They look like black buttons :)

Sandra, I hope to plant Cyclamens in the blue pots over the weekend and possibly take down the manger baskets, so bye-bye Marigolds! Same here with the yellow berries, always the last to go. Shame about the Bowling green damage ... :o(

Thanks Ange, no gardening will get done here today, far too wet and windy.

Eileen, long may they flower!

Hywel, shame the 'beasties' have eaten away at the Rudbeckias. Virtually every Sedum leaf here has a tiny snail resting on it, grrr!
