i think maybe yellow is my favorite color

B put together a bunch of soft yellow flowers this weekend that he set on a table in the parlor. During dinner on Saturday night with friends, I kept craning my neck to catch of a glimpse of that arrangement glowing in the next room.

Three flowers only: Dahlias “Clair de Lune” and “Yellow Gem” and Helianthus “Lemon Queen.”


  1. Gorgeous bouquet! I work at a flower shop and I love it when I can create a monochromatic colour scheme. B is very talented.

  2. Hi Jared - I have 'Lemon Queen' in my garden too. I've been out admiring it in the late September sunshine with a blogging buddy today :)

    I just came over to thank you so much for your letter, magnet and especially your gift of a poem. It's so thoughtful and very apt for my situation just now. Robert Frost is one of my favourite poets because he's one of the first I can remember from schooldays. That and his connection so close to where you live makes it doubly apt :)

    I hope you don't mind if I use it for Garden Bloggers Muse Day on Thursday and mention your gift?

  3. Hi, VP,

    So glad you like it! I feel like it's apt for my life now, too. Funny how that is!

    I'd be honored if you'd use it for your muse day offering on Thursday, too. You've just made my day!

    Best, Jared

  4. Hurray - post's written and will be up tomorrow :)


  5. Thanks, Deborah, for stopping by and visiting! B has a good eye, I think!
