And bright glorious light for today’s “Square” entry, once again from Descanso Gardens in southern California.

Fleur jaune = yellow flower. I’m not sure what type of flower this is, possibly broom of some sort. If anyone knows, feel free to let me know. In the meantime, just enjoy the flower and your Friday.

for Life in Colour: yellow

Pre-Thanksgiving at Descanso Gardens wasn’t as verdant as spring or summer, but the rose garden was, if not in full bloom, at least in blooming health. There was a choice of colors but today’s color is yellow, just for Jude and the flower is for Cee’s FOTD.

“It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.”
― Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib

“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Thanks to Arthur Conan Doyle, The Naval Treaty for the quote in the title.

I’ve been dreaming about winter in Illinois. I know you think that’s crazy when it’s cold and they have lots of snow. But I do love winter and you know what comes after winter and all that snow melts? Spring and summer and flowers. And it’s Friday, which means flowers, so I time-traveled back to a summer not long ago in Illinois. Here’s what I found.

Getting up close and personal with this flower. Happy Friday!

Also the name of one of my favorite dramatic comedy movies. Or humorous dramas. Whatever. Favorite. 🙂

Descanso Gardens again. Even in November there were flowers. Of course November in southern California isn’t December in many other places, but it that made it even more of a joy to see. It was UPlifting.

In Descanso Gardens, even the small places are attractive.

It may be December, but at Descanso Gardens in southern California, there are flowers in bloom, especially in and around the Rose Garden. Although these aren’t roses, they’re bright and cheerful and if they are as I think nasturtiums, they are edible and also used decoratively with food.
