Yellow Is The Colour Of My True Love's Hair

I sort of vaguely remember that there's a song with such a title. Is there? It is just that when I look at the spray of yellow orchids that I am posting today, the lyrics keep popping into my head...

These photographs above were taken when I was in Auckland in the Winter Garden conservatory. Presented here for Mellow Yellow.


The two macros are orchids from my own garden, served up for Macro Monday.

These two plants have been faithfully blooming for years...they certainly understand the art of aging gracefully!The mosaic above showing the plants from way back , when they were younger, is made for Mosaic Monday.
