Liz thats a favourite coreopsis of mine - I like its pale lemon colour more so than the other brash yellow ones. Beautiful photos.

Lovely, dreamy photos!

Beautiful colour, had only seen the brighter yellow ones before. I looked it up and seems quite tall - does it need staking? Stunning photos too...

Cheryl said...

Hi Liz, hope you are well and happy?

Love the images of the coreopsis. It is a particular favourite of mine. I try not to plant too many of said species because the rabbits just will not leave them alone.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend and not studying too hard.....

Dear Liz, I have this particular coreopsis in my garden. You have captured its delicate bloom perfectly. Pam x

Liz said...

Hi Carol,

Thank you very much, glad you liked them :)

Liz said...

Hi Rosie,

I love its pure petals, some can seem a little ragged but I love how these are nice and smooth - well that is when the slugs/snails etc aren't eating them!

I expected this to be more creamy than it is, the photos on the website I got it off showed it to be an off white with hints of yellow... Never mind...

Liz said...

Hi Laura,

Thanks! :)

Liz said...

Hi Jan,

Thank you, as you're probably aware I like my dreamy images, hee hee

Liz said...

Hi Janet,

I have not needed to stake the Coreopsis this year, but it is only its first year and perhaps in the future it may need some help. It tends to grow round though, so hopefully will not flop over as some plants can.

Hi Cheryl,

No studying quite yet, lectures begin this week. It was induction week last week and they already made us do a group presentation.
I freaked out a little during my part... Ooops, but I think I redeemed myself in the questioning section as I was pretty much the only one talking/answering the questions.

Liz said...

Hi Pam,

Thank you very much! I hope next year I have a better show, this plant is still young. I did buy two but the second doesn't appear to be 'moonbeam', its flowers are more acidic yellow... Grrrr.

So gorgeous that, for once, I'm almost speechless!

How's the course going?

I just saw that plant at our local nursery and would like to have it! They put it in our boulevard planters here in town too and it looks just fantastic!

Moonbeam coreopsis is one of my favorites, and you have captured the essence of its name. I am always amazed at your ethereal photos. Beautiful!
