Yellow,orange and brown wild flowers

Sorry about not posting lately. I have been in such a foul mood lately. I had some skin cancers taken off my face and arm last week. I haven't got the results back yet. Then this past Thursday I had some laser work done on my left eye due to the pressure staying so high even with me on meds for it. I hope it helps. 
Well we haven't been in good enough health to go anywhere for me to take any pictures so I will post some more wildflowers in our flower beds. Today they will be on the yellow, orange, and brown theme.

I have some more yellows but will show them later.
Everyone have a blessed Saturday night and Sunday.


  1. Oh Helen,
    I'm so sorry to hear you are experiencing more health problems. I sure hope you get good news from your test results.

    Even though you aren't feeling good, you bring us all this sunshine with your beautiful flower photos! I love the color theme. Yellows and oranges are always my favorites. Always cheerful.

    Wishing you & Ken healthy days,

  2. Hi Helen,
    I can see why you haven't been up for much. That is a lot of weight to carry and still function.
    LOvely pictures though I did recognize one, I think it is a 'Brown-eyed Susan', I could be wrong, ha!
    praying for better days!

  3. I will pray your health improves Helen. It's no fun having all of this done. I watched as my parents worried about each other during some rough times,and now, it seems it's our turn.
    Keep on showing and taking time to enjoy the flowers. They always make me feel better.
    You have a beautiful show of blanket flowers, california poppy, daisy, rubecia, all lovely.

  4. Sorry you are still having issues with your eye. Praying you get good results and heal quickly. As always, beautiful flowers. Take care, Sheila

    I just noticed that my Monarda is beginning to bloom.

  15. I think your pictures are awesome. You cerainly have a knack for growing them as well as photographing them!

    Hope you feel better soon. My BP was down, for the first time in months. I wish I felt better. But living with chronic pain is tough stuff, as you already know too well.

    Take care, hope you do feel better soon!

  16. Your eyes are precious. You must take care of them. So sorry to hear about your health woes. I hope the outcome of your tests bring better news. The photographs were beautiful. I'm in love with that vibrant orange flower.

  19. I hope your test turn out good. Your flowers are so beautiful! Sending up prayers

  20. I had one mole removed several years ago and it was non-cancerous. I am checked every year now. The yellow and red-maroon flowers in combination with the greens make for a beautiful picture. I look for color combinations to improve my knowledge for painting (when the day comes that I really start on my canvas again). I watch PBS painting programs that have taught me much. Thanks for commenting on my entry and on Salty.
    My worker and I finally got the sliding glass door removed from behind my other 2 doors, that sat occupying the same space for years. We moved it with half the glass side in it and his knowledge from working at the Home Depot made it go very well. Soon I will have a photo of the work that is being done, though it may be a week or so before I post it in my blogger/journal.
    Best thoughts,
