Yellow Celebration A coat of paint on one small structure can sometimes uplift a whole yard. A fresh coat of yellow paint on the backyard hut led me to consider the many shades of yellow vegetation to be found throughout the yard. The yellow stair rail extends the color theme. Queen Anne’s lace, orange daylilies, and red bee balm pop out against the bright backdrop with white accents. Queen Anne’s lace seems to float on a yellow wall. A lemon yellow daylily remains vibrant after yet another shower. Erin Lea lilies show ruffled yellow petals tinged with brown. Stella d’Oro daylilies, white yarrow and rose campion contrast with the cobalt blue birdbath. Amber and gold-toned calendulas are companion plants throughout the vegetable gardens. The blue chair lends a “primary colors” touch to this area. Erin Lea daylily. Purple D’Oro lily with a buttery yellow center. Bumblebee yellow on a calendula! Pineapple yellow non-stop begonia with blue hydrangea in the background. One final touch: a mint green ladder hung on the back wall lightens up the shady side of the hut, and provides a year round color contrast. Share this:EmailLike this:Like Loading...

What a beautiful garden! Wonderful colours; I particularly like the blue birdbath and chair.
Thank you. The blue bird bath makes a good photography subject, especially when it is filled with friends!
That’s a great color for the hut!
Thank you ! It’s quite zippy for reserved New England, I think! 😉
Love the yellow hut color, brightens your garden and shines all your other colors too! A beautiful, inviting place to relax with nature. 🙂
Thank you so much for your kind words!
Beautiful!! Yellow is a favorite color of mine. Can’t help but smile when I see yellow! Love all the lilies too!!
Thank you. Lilies are actually my favorite flower. Each to take care of, return faithfully each year!
What a lot of good cheer! The hut is a lovely yellow and it’s amazing how it serves to lift all the other yellow tones in the garden.
It is cheerful! Another happy thought I have about it: back in the sixties a former owner built it to house a pony. Must have been such a sweet sight!
P.S. Thinking of you, and hoping for your safety as I read the news each day. Have you been able to get a vaccine yet?
The pony in the hut is a sweet though.
Thanks for the kind thoughts. The number of infections continues to accelerate in this ‘third wave’ and things are not good. We are fortunate that we don’t have to go out to work and also we had our vaccinations – both shots. I must say that it has reduced the level of personal anxiety even though we continue to be as careful as before.
So very, very beautiful! And what a snappy burst of a shed.
Thanks so much for your kind words!
Your garden harbors so many wonderful colors and surprises!
Thanks, Tanja. It does have a lot of diversity, as half of our land is woods. It makes it harder to garden, because of the shade, but so much more wildlife visits because of it.
Thanks for this vibrant visit to your enchanting garden, Julie. So much life and color and tranquility.
Thanks, Jet! It is a special place for me, and it made these past covid months so much easier to bear!
Such a beautiful garden with beautiful flowers.I love the color of the hut……it’s so refreshing!
Thank you–the hut used to be brown, so it quite a bright change!
