Five Yellow Things

Color has always been a part of my life. I can recall flashes of different color that meant something to me as I grew up.

The pale white of the milk that my aunt poured from her milking pail.

The pretty blue of the bachelor buttons in the flower garden

The grey and white of my cat Noddy.

Yellow, however, was not part of my growing up. It has begun to weave itself into the colors that I most cherish in this later part of my life.

Some of my favorite yellow things:
I like the idea of riding a bicycle through the streets of a very small French town, my basket filled with large yellow flowers.

I've always been a huge fan of trains and I hate it that the caboose has disappeared from the tail of the train. They are now relegated to museums and picture books. 

One of my favorite vegetables to eat is the crook-neck squash. These however have been made into swans. 

Any long, flowing dress makes me feel very special. This one would wrap me in sunshine.

Pretty yellow butterflies flitting amongst the blossoms. 

 Five of the things that makes me smile.

    1. Oh, I wish, Tom. Been awhile since I was that young or that skinny.

  8. You found all wonderful shades of yellow to photograph, Latane!

  9. Oh, your yellows are so cheerful. Those swans are cool. Did the squash grow like that? I love the yellow bike and the train. My grandfather worked for the railroad, so I am sentimental about trains.


  10. Yellow just brightens up the day....I love all the yellows and golds of fall.
