Header Challenge

Header Challenge Theme: Yellow- had me strolling through the garden archives. I believe Tom-Ass over at http://womtig.blogspot.com/ chose the theme. Please visit him along with http://thefishingguy.blogspot.com/ , http://meandering-martha.blogspot.com/ , and http://beestonblog.blogspot.com/ to see what "Yellow" they came up with. Imac is on vacation this week so he will not be participating. Don't forget to leave your honest opinions!!


Header Photo is of a Skipper on a Mexican Sunflower - Tithonia diversifolia- grows 6 to 15 feet and sometimes upward of that, likes full sun and smells of honey Nov. 15, 2008.

Now how did I know you would post gorgeous yellow flowers today? It's funny that we used the same flower - Tom's looks like it could be a Mexican Sunflower too! Awesome header shot!

Memories are so we can have roses in December, or blacked eyed susans in March.

So Darla, what I want to know is, did you win for the bird photo and the circles photo? If not the judge might be needing a new pair of glasses. :)

Yellow, so bright and cheery. Great photos as usual.

I hope the weather warms up soon. This is getting ridiculous, isn't it? I bet you're thankful for patience and a good sweater.

Popped over from Menagerie's when I saw the promise of more pretty yellow flowers here. Gettin' my cyber spring fix to hold me over until the real thing comes. Gorgeous photos!

Becca's Dirt said...

Congrats on the header win. I hate that I have to miss most of it now. I leave work at 3:30 every day except Fri and I'm off at noon. Though the hours have been cut I am enjoying being able to get outdoors in the gardens more often.

Garden Lily said...

That's one weird-looking Rudbeckia! I like the cheery yellows.
