Yellow summer flowers


We're in the middle of summer and the scorching heat can be unbearable.  But these yellow flowers look fresh under the mid-day sun while everybody was sluggish and wilting in the heat.  Not sure if this is justicia aurea/yellow jacobinia.

"What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity.  These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable." ~ Joseph Addison

From the freshness of the capture ... you could not tell you are experiencing scorching temperatures. Our scorchers are only a couple of months away. Thank you for sharing.
