Today's Flowers and Weekend Flowers: Out and about in early August

I'm going to start with shots I took of flowers at a corner shopping area this week.
The rain and cooler than normal summer has kept the flowers looking fresh.
Normally by August many flowers would be brown and dying back.
This August everywhere I go the flowers look fresh and happy.
It definitely improves my mood when I see lovely flowers all over the place.
The rest of the shots are ones I took at Grace Garden this week.
I love seeing so many yellow flowers.
I like the shades of color in the rose below.
