I don’t remember the soft, pale yellow blossoms of the Daylilies in the front garden from last year.

The people who live in a Golden Age usually go around complaining how yellow everything looks.

They make the Coreopsis look quite intense by comparison.

And the Marigolds offer yet another hue.

There are more shades of yellow in the daylilies around the house

Even the pollen is a shade of yellow, if you’ll let your mind believe that orange is a very deep shade of yellow.

There’s some red around here too, maybe I’ll write Flaming Red next.

Hi Norm,

I think the navigation in your photo pages (like http://norman.walsh.name/2004/07/16/images/20040716-155832.html) is broken, or at least not what you intended. The numbered links at the top take you to the next full-size image, and not the next HTML page with the title and the inline image.

Cheers, Marty.
