Mellow Yellow Monday



Drowsy Monkey hosts this colorful meme.

Two yellow photos in one day:

The top photo I grabbed driving to pick up friends in New York City.

The other is a macro shot of an herb (I think
St. John's Wort) in the Cloisters herb garden, Ft. Tryon Park, N.Y.

St. John's Wort

Highly regarded herb for it's medicinal qualities. Used as an anti-depressant. It forms a shrubby plant with unique and beautiful early yellow flowers. Grows to 12-16" tall.

Who knew that St John's wart could be such a looker of a flower! WIth a name like 'wart' I would have had my doubts:)
