Mellow Yellow Monday - Tidy-tips

I've been busy today and I've done three post. My actual Today's Flower post is two below this one but if you want to comment here rather than scroll down, it's okay. :-) I believe these are called tidy-tips. I took these at the Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Gardens a couple of weeks ago. Aren't they pretty with their white tips?

Tidy tips. I LOVE that name. So perfect for such a sassy flower.

I like it when you are "busy"...it guarantees me more beautiful pics to enjoy...and of course the music...zzzzzz

Out of highschool, I bought a Minolta XG-M Camera. Still have it. I almost pursued the photography field. I think I would have done well in it. Oh well.....

Lovely daisy-like flowers. Tidy-tips? They look like a yellow version of gaillardia (blanketflowers).

I am always so jealous of the early flowers you guys in the South have way before us in South West Canada.
We are like Seattle in the weather and it is just starting to warm up here this year.
Seeing your pretty yellow flowers makes me yearn for summer even more.

Denise said...
