Certainly is, it is just me remembering to pick, store, and send. Oodles of seedlings from last year as I was not sure if it would get through the winter and let the seeds self sow. I am going to try to transplant a few and will save some seeds this year. By the way it self seeds, it could be used as an annual in the colder zones.

Yellow Bird is a tree.

I am heading off to visit Sharon in a few minutes with a stop or two at nurseries on the way. Beautiful day here and although tons of work in my own garden to do, visiting Sharons will just inspire me to work harder the rest of the week.

Difficult to spend any at Sharon's as she and Bill are very generous souls.

I'm really enjoying all these lovely pics, but just have to ask: Why would someone not want yellow in the garden? I saw this mentioned and I'm curious.

Peggy , its not that I don't want any yellow in the garden but too much yellow can be over powering. Yellow is not my favorite colour but I do like some yellow in the garden , just not too much.

Beautiful yellows! I am fond of yellow myself but have no yellows blooming just yet.

Last year I bought a German bearded iris: 'Harlow Gold' which is really yellow. It is a mid-size iris with blooms that are close to the foliage.

Mine did not bloom this year because of the weather. Here is a link, though, to see what it looks like. It might be right up your alley, Betty.
