What is it about yellow flowers? Is it that I think lemons are beautiful? Is it that they would go well in my ideal purple and white garden? (I am *so* not a gardener!) Is it that they are inherently cheerful? Is it that yellow is a difficult paint color but easy-peasy in nature? Is it that it makes green look greener, fresher?
Along the beach road there were masses of shrubs blooming profusely with these cylindrical, ear-of-corn shaped buds. I don’t recall them from last year. But who knows why one notices things one day, or one season, and not the next. If we noticed everything all the time, nothing would be special?
