Yellow's time to shine
I don't really mean to repeat myself but that rainbow swiss chard really was a bit more red than purple. Thing is it is also golden (look at the background of the above pic, and the whole of the pic below!)
As are the golden beetroot. Although given how long this guy has been in the ground I suspect he will be all green leaves and no golden root.
The marigolds are of course a brilliant yellow
So too the now ripe lemons (yes there are yellow lemons, green lemons and many many flowers in this potted wonder, it never ceases to amaze me, or to stop flowering, it is the energizer bunnies of citrus trees!)
The gazania is very slowly unfurling a large flower, which is as yellow as they come
Yellow snapdragons are difficult to capture in their almost fluorescent yellow loveliness.
And the indoor tomatoes add a splash of colour with their flowers which round off the golden touch to the balcony garden (unless you count the yellowing and dying leaves of these same indoor tomato plants but we will save that for another post)
