Yellow Swamp Beauties - Weekend Flowers

These pictures were taken from a small hidden bridge along a path which leads to an unusual fruit tree.  How I love the tasty fruit of that strawberry tree!

The once lively pond and stream is now a swamp clotted with beautiful yellow flowers.  Frogs, spiders, insects and birds seem to adore living there.

Close up, the detail of these bright blooms is lovely.

This is a jumping spider.  Sissy and I spotted him on this wrinkled leaf in the midst of the yellow lilies, as we crossed over one of the hidden bridges found in The Abandoned.  It was a decided shock, to see this critter watching us, for sure!

I love the idea of Weekend Flowers!  To see more lovely blooms from everywhere, visit Terra's blog Goodies for a Pleasant Life.

Beautiful lilies, they seem to thrive in swampy areas.
