MELLOW YELLOW – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Yellow

We were away for three days and the bananas didn’t do well. Three of them literally fell apart when I tried to stack them up and were too gooey even for a photograph. Two made it, but they are still going into the trash.

Bananas don’t last. But, lucky for me, Garry brought home a batch of acorn squash, so I have yellow on yellow. I suppose the acorn squash is more ochre … but that’s sort of yellow, right?

Yellow!

YOU’LL WONDER WHERE THE YELLOW WENT …

Do YOU wonder where the yellow went? Or who wrote the book of love?


Sometimes, advertising really sticks with you. This one sure has. Pepsodent. Is that toothpaste still around? What was irium? I.M.P.?

And where did the yellow go? I wonder, wonder who wrote the book of love? Did he steal all the yellow?

SHINY YELLOW FLOWERS AND A PONTIAC

Normally, by this time of year, we’d have all kind of yellow flowers blooming in the gardens. But the chilliness and constant rain since March has slowed down the arrival of the flowers — and apparently stopped some completely. I could not find a single bud on the rose bushes. Nor are any day lilies in bloom, although I’m sure they will arrive … albeit late.

So all of these yellows are from previous years because the yellows just are not here up yet — except for the early daffodils, a couple of tulips, and the ever present forsythia.

And here’s to a fabulous weekend coming up! We deserve at least one really love one, don’t we?

MELLOW (YELLOW)

As days go, this has been a very mellow one. I finally got a decent night’s sleep. And it’s pretty warm, a bright clear day with a lovely winter pale yellow sun almost adding color to the otherwise rather gray landscape. The last days of January without snow is almost a world with the pause button pressed.

The dogs know how to deal with such a day. They are good that way.

Now, I’m going off to wash my hair, then cook a little supper.
