The Theme is Yellow

Backwards Dandelion

Sleeping Boat, Pigeon Lake

Marsh Marigolds

Yellow Canary ( Warbler ) next to our hammock. She was complaining as we were too close to her nest in a wild rose bush, with four cream-coloured eggs with speckles on them in it.

Our Fire at the Cabin with Dandelions
Today's theme is Yellow. There are so many things in nature and elsewhere that are yellow. It seems to be a popular colour. It is the colour of the sun; the leaves of the maple trees in  the fall; taxis in Vancouver and New York; yellow lines on the road; and stands out if you wear it. It is mentally stimulating. Here are a few photos from our recent trip to Alberta with yellow in them...(and orange). Oh yes, by the way, Debussy liked blondes too, that's why he wrote a piece called "The Girl with the Flaxen Hair"....

Such a cheerful colour. I've been looking for some yellow cushions for my newly decorated sitting room ... but it can't be in fashion right now as I can't find any.

Lovely mellow colour, strikingly mellow photographs. I feel relaxed just looking at them.
