  1. Thanks for the sunshine of this post. All that yellow almost makes it feel warm here.

  2. Wow! Gorgeous garden as always!
    Love Hosta and Dandelion is just fantastic.
    Have a lovely day.

  3. So pleased you've included a dandelion. They are loathed as weeds here but I love their cheerfulness so much I've transplanted a couple into one of my flower beds. Until recently I hadn't realised there are lots and lots of varieties. I'm tempted to begin a collection. Happy New Year. Esther

  4. Beautiful garden in a beautiful setting.
    The bees are loving our healthy 'crop' of dandelions right now. I feel that they shouldn't be mowed! Sigh

  5. I love green and yellow, this is very nice pictures from your fantastic garden.
    Happy New year 2014!

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog! I love your yellow flowers. Nice to see summer pictures this time of the year. Like your Dandelion :-)

  7. this was such a great post, even though I would not be a green and gold fan and we won't get into what I think about how they got where they are....
    your setting is breathtaking and your pics are stunning!

  8. There is shocking news in the sports betting world.
