Colors on Monday-Yellow

It's time once again for Colors on Monday hosted by Jen at Unglazed. To participate click on Colors on Monday icon on my side bar.Care to guess? This is an upclose pic of a squash bloom. I wish I could tell you the squash did wonderful but I'd be lying if I did. I guess you could say the squash borers enjoyed it more than I.Rudbeckias are one of the easiest plants to grow. This particular one is Rudbeckia maxima. It grew to be about 7 feet tall. They can make a neat attraction to your flower bed.During our vacation in northern Arkansas we took a hike down by the Buffalo River. I can't resist stopping to take pics of wildflowers.

Hope you enjoyed my yellow pics and I hope everyone has a great YELLOW Monday!

Deb said...

Susie...great yellow photos..sorry about your squash...

Mildred said...

Beautiful yellow blooms Susie. We never had success with squash either and we LOVE it! I bet the birds love your Rudbeckias. Happy Monday.

Rose said...

Wow, that is one big sunflower! Yellow seems to be the predominant color in my garden right now, too, with lots of rudbeckias still blooming their hearts out. My squash and cucumbers aren't doing so well either, Susie.

Ben said...

Good flower pix! I am not familiar with those rudbeckias - they are quite interesting!

I'm sorry to hear about your squash, but your flowers are definitely pretty. Thanks for a great 'Yellow' post.

We didn't get as much squash as I had hope for.....

Luv the pictures.

Jacquie said...

I would've never guessed the squash. I LOVE wildflowers.

Good Morning, Susie! Great 'Yellow' shots today! Is that wildflower a Coreopsis? We see a good many of those around here in the Fall. I believe the Coreopsis is Mississippi's State Wildflower.

Beautiful yellow flowers. I didn't know squash bloomed?!! (I just eat it!)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Beautiful yellow blooms, Susie....

We haven't been to the Wild Buffalo River in Northern Arkansas yet--but one of these days, I hope that George and I will get up there when we are in Arkansas.

Have a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Very nice yellow shots! The top one had me stumped until I read Janets comment. Happy Color Monday!

Jen said...

Happy YELLOW Monday Susie.
At least your squash gave you this pretty yellow bloom for today. :) Enjoy

I love all the sunny yellow flowers in your garden--they do make me smile. I am sorry to hear of your squash blossom's demise. Nasty ole squash bugs!

Margaret said...

I can always count on some good tunes to read your blog by!
7 feet tall? I want some of them!
The squash flower is pretty, even if you didn't get many squash..

Rosey said...

Such a cheerful yellow! Darn those borers. My squash is barely surviving some sort of blight.
Sounds like a fun hike! I am glad you shared these photos of the flowers.

Our squash plants bloomed like crazy but never produced any squash....hmm

perennialgardener said...

I didn't have any success with my squash this year either Susie. Such a shame too, I love fried squash patties. ;)

Busy Bee Suz said...

Great shots Susie. Love the squash bloom...I hope you have better luck with them next time!!

Tipper said...

Love it! What is it about yellow-it just makes me happy : )

Becky said...

Happy "Yellow" Monday Sis~~~ love the pics!!!!

Daisy said...

Hi Susie! That's too bad about the squash. I love the flowers, especially the wildflowers. How pretty! I hope you have a great week! :-)

KathyB. said...

Those rudbeckia are stunning, and how can there be a 'yellow' post without bright and cheery yellow flowers!

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

I love the sunny yellows. That rudbeckia is so neat, I'm going to see if it would grow here.

THE OLD GEEZER said...

I've never heard of Rudbeckia maxima.
I learned something new today. Thanks

Hey Susie ~ You're blog is beautiful*! I haven't been keeping up in Blogland as much as I should, but I'm hoping to get caught up. I hope you've had a great day, enjoyed the cooler temps, and having a great evening*!

((Hugs)) _Ashley

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Those are nice yellow blooms. I normally get a few squash before the borers kill the plants, but this year, I did not.

kanak7 said...

Hi Susie...I like all the yellows but the close shot of the squash bloom is wonderful!!

Happy weekend!
