Mellow Yellow Monday #20

I love this photo, my cousin took it in Coffs Harbour, NSW Australia. The plant is called a Banksia.

Oh Wow - Poor Mr Linky! RIP. (lol) Not really lol, but what can ya do, eh?

Thanks to everyone who participated - If you used the link to your actual MYM post I was able to recover (most) of them. If you just left a link to your blog I didn't include it because it just gets too confusing. Also, check out the comments for more links.

This is a wonderful picture. I have never seen a plant like this one.

Kathy said...

Thats cool looking. Never seen anything like it.

Willa said...

wow! so new to me, it's so unique!!

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Banksia is one of our native flora. It withstands and outlasts the aridity of the climate here and doesn't need much maintenance. You plant and forget and blooms are as copious as the stars in the night. Very generous blooming shrubs and trees they are.

Wanna find yourself here?

Chriss said...

I've never seen a plan like that before. Great shot!

Fadil Wimala said...

Martha said...

Karen said...

Beautiful flower and a great shot..

It's like a yellow candle..

I added my post to your other link page :-)

Ladynred said...

Interesting plant! I've never seen it before.

Tricia said...

I've never seen a plant like it before either - It almost looks like a ear of corn broke in half. That's a beautiful background for the flower.

Tink *~*~* said...

I see your Mister Linky is under the weather too. Lot of that going around - hope it's not that crazy new flu. Get well soon, Mister Linky!

LOOKS LIKE MR LINKY LOST ALLLLL THE LINKS!

Allison said...

This is really a trippy looking plant/flower. Sooo unusual. Reminds me of an eaten corn cob!
I am sorry you are having this headache with the links. Hopefully everything will get better here in awhile. I am sure everyone is with me on the fact we are so happy you have this meme.
Thanks again for it!
PEACE!!!

Daisy said...

Wow--how cool is that! Looks like a fuzzy ear of corn turned into a flower. I really like this one, Drowsey! Happy Mellow Yellow Monday to you. :D

KitchenMaus said...

And you took it by the beach? Beautiful!

Annie said...

What an interesting and very pretty flower. It looks, at first glance, like the remains of an ear of corn. I also like the contrast between it's buttery yellow color and the silver green of its leaves.

The Explorer said...

This is a nice shot. Looks like similar to a corn fruit to me

Liza said...

First time I've seen that. TFS!

Bryan said...

I think Mr. Linky is keeping all the wonderful pictures to himself.

katherine said...

oh, i've never seen a plant like that before. it's looks like a corn. nice photo.

very nice flower.. it adds life to the otherwise "gloomy and lonely" sea. mine is now up too!

Nukke said...

Finnish yellow flowers in wild are here :)

Greyscale Territory said...

Not unusual to see this plant for me! But it still surprises me just when it flowers! It is Autumn now and some are still flowering!

Great shot!

hip chick said...

I have never seen anything like that. It looks like corn on the cob that someone has already eaten.

Tina said...

Debo Hobo said...

I love exotic flowers!!!



Mr. Linky is not feeling Monday so much...

storyteller said...

Nifty plant ... marvelous photo! Hats off to your cousin ;--)

Mr. Linky's been stinky for the past few days, but I managed to enter my Mellow Yellow link for Small Reflections. Happy Memorial Day everyone!
Hugs and blessings,

SouthLakesMom said...

What a beautiful plant! Does it have a scent? I see the surf behind it - does it need salt air?

Here's my yellow not mellow bird!

boliyou said...

That's a really cool plant!

Barb said...

Beautiful - it reminds me of a bottle brush. Australia has such interesting plants. (Mr Linky still not working...)

Mountain Living said...

Great photo! I can't find your Mr. Linky to post mine!

prkl said...

That looks like a huge catkin. Fine handling with the depth of field also.

Happy MYM everyone!!

onangelwings said...

That is a great picture. I don't have much yellow around me these days. But I did find a big yellow ball.

Lindy MacDuff said...

Looks like a tropical dream - very beautiful. :-)

Mary said...

I didn't realize until very late that Mr. Linky had lost the links. You have a tremendous lot of patience to deal with this every week! Thanks for your work on the site.
