Mellow Yellow Monday #88 - Flower Near the Golden Gate - September 27, 2010

Mellow Yellow Monday #88 - Flower Near the Golden Gate - September 27, 2010

When a friend was visiting last week, I took her out sightseeing in our unbelievably
beautiful weather.  On the Marin side of the Golden Gate, from the observation area, we
got amazing views of San Francisco, without a bit of fog.  This little yellow flower ( or,
maybe, it's actually a weed ) caught my eye perched against the blue of the Pacific

I am participating in Mellow Yellow Monday!
Join in the fun.


  1. That's a gorgeous shot, Carmen! Beautiful yellow flower against the blue background!

  2. Yellow flowers are at their best against blue sky or water.

  3. great shot you have a way of making something considered less than by others, a beautiful thing to look at

  4. Beautiful yellow flowers to decorate your day.

  5. Lovely! Looks like a lovely day with that gorgeous plant/flowers.

    Optimistic Yellow, have a great week!

  6. beautiful shot

  7. It's just amazing how you can always find the yellow beauty of a flower in that place where you are... i guess if i observed a bit more i could also find some somewher here... but never as beautiful as yours...for sure!

    hugs my dear

  8. Nice shot, I like your yellow flowers against the background.

  9. I like it! You have a good eye.

  10. My daughter always says "it doesn't count as a weed if it is beautiful". Your flower definitely fits into the beautiful category.

  11. Beautiful photo, elegant and sweet. I give up on Yellows...did I say that before? Some of your yellow captures are just too unbelievably beautiful.

  12. simply gorgeous.

    I agree with you that the ocean made a great backdrop for this flower.

    I think that yellow flower was a weed but it was still lovely.

    I know your Canaries are filled with so many beautiful things. I look at photographs online. You need to get out there with your camera and share them with us.

    That flower was growing in a pretty inhospitable rocky spot on the hillside.

    I like your daughter's philosophy - there are so many beautiful weed's out there!
