PhotoHunt: Yellow

PhotoHunters

Coreopsis

It is time again for PhotoHunt. This week's theme is perfect for the beginning of spring - Yellow. I couldn't resist selecting a cheery yellow flower. This is a coreopsis that I took in the Sacramento Historical Cemetery. The Old City Cemetery has a program to let gardeners adopt a plot. There are excellent perennial beds, a beautiful rose garden and a section devoted to California native plants. We always enjoy exploring the gardens. And the cemetery is also very interesting. Many of the California pioneers such as John Sutter are buried in the cemetery and there are very interesting headstones.

Here are a few more pictures:

Beautiful and meaningful shots!

These are such beautiful photos. Love them all but esp. that coreopsis. That cemetery sounds very interesting. Happy Spring!

Such lovely shots! I can practically hear the insects buzzing in the heat.

I did yellow today, too! I hope you can come visit.

Have a great weekend!

I have memories of going to Sacramento.

I was born in Marysville, then we moved onto Beale Air Force Base.

One of the women in my digital scrapbook forum is living at Beale Air Force Base right now.

Small world. :)

Beautiful photos. I love the idea of an adopt a plot program.

Such warm and sunny selections!

Hi Marta, beautiful close-up photos and perfect for this week's theme. All your photos are so sharp and crisp. And the cemetary adoption is very unique and interesting.

Great choices for this week's theme! Have a great Sunday Marta.

I knew you would have some great yellow blooms!

Gorgeous photos! I love the idea of letting gardeners adopt a plot. I wished that idea could me implemented in an old immigrant cemetery located near where I live. It is so sad to see the cemetery overgrown with weeds.

I am just loving the pictures of flowers. Nothing much is blooming in the city!

Your photos of the yellow flowers are beautiful. Spring is on its way.
