ABC Wednesday: Y is for Yellow

Yellow flowers are very cheerful looking.
I'm glad I was able to enjoy my yellow rudbeckia (black-eyed susan) early in the season this year.
All of this shots were taken a few weeks ago.
Unfortunately with our excessive heat of late, most of these yellow flowers have turned brown.
The yellow sun causes a lot of damage when it burns too hot.

Amazing and dazzling flowers.

I have been hearing about the heat spell that your part of the world is experiencing. The curling of the thirsty yellow petals expresses that to some degree!

Awesome shots Carver!

What a great set of images, they are beautiful yellow flowers!
I think yellow brings lots of good energies, great choice for the theme!

these are great. it's a shame the heat is taking the life out of the flowers (and trees) so quickly. we noticed the color leaving some of the trees yesterday on our drive back home. it's been a bad year for nature, wildlife and even the people. hope you're staying safe from all this heat. have a great day~

And I fear that all of the time, it'll be too hot, or cold, or wet, or dry. Been true in the US this year for sure!

So sorry the heat is doing such devastating things in your area.
