Well, what can I say about yellow flowers? I think I’m safe to leave them to speak for themselves.

Shared for this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Yellow.

Yellow is such an uplifting colour, I couldn’t resist joining in when I started to see sunshine colours lighting up my Reader. The challenge runs for a week, so you’ve plenty of time to hunt out some yellows of your own.

  1. No way! Tecoma stans! I have not seen that in a long time. It is one of those fabulously prolific bloomers that really should be more popular than it is here. I saw it only once in a nursery; and it was a runty compact cultivar. I have seen the straight species only once, in the landscape of an abandoned house in San Jose that was being restored. Even though I explained that the specimen was quite mature and would not likely survive for long, the landscape designer insisted on pruning it back (from leaning on a low roof) and salvaging it until a replacement could be obtained. Neighbors loved the flashy bloom too much to cut it down. A replacement was never found; but miraculously, a root sucker developed into a new trunk, which developed into a few more trunks just before the original rotted and fell over! It was almost comical how it worked out. The new tree was set so squarely behind the original, and the original had been pruned back so severely in an attempt to salvage it, that it looked as if the original had just been pruned when it was actually completely gone. Yeah!

  2. I love that Tecoma stans. It’s so common around here, and so pretty. It’s often used as a commercial landscaping plant — it twines around grocery store pillars and restaurant trellises, and grows wild in the woods. Here, they’re often called yellow bells, although I think ‘yellow belles’ would be better!

      1. I’ve seen them climb high into the trees — so high that you might not even see them, had they not dropped their spent blossoms onto the ground beneath.
