I saw, earlier this week on Instagram, a daffodil blooming, In July. In Canada. It reminded me how much I love yellow flowers, either planned (as in the masses of daffodils I have every spring) or unplanned (as in the masses of dandelions I have every spring). Right now I have both planned and unplanned yellow blooms. The most prevalent unplanned would be the sweet smelling tall yellow clover (Melilotus officinalis), and the ground hugging, bee magnet bird’s foot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus).
Here are six planned, more or less, yellow blooms.
And that’s what’s growing in my Prince Edward County, Ontario, garden this first week of July. We’ve had a mini heat wave this week, with humidex values in the high 30’s, tempered by a cool breeze from nearby Lake Ontario and the occasional burst of rain to keep everything perky and green.
