Yellow Takes Center Stage

Monday is the day in blogland when the cheerful, sunshiny color yellow gets to take center stage over at Mellow Yellow Monday.  It is a good thing too because  my camera and I have been working overtime to make up for all those months of being housebound recently.  I have to admit that not being able to take my camera out on those illusive photo-hunts for blog worthy shots, was the thing I missed most during my illness.

Yellow is one of my all time favorite colors.  In fact, I have had a yellow kitchen in every house I have lived in since 1966.  Even when yellow was out of fashion and it was impossible to find yellow kitchen accessories I had to keep my yellow kitchen.  

  I seldom travel into the city, but, a recent trip to a doctor in St. Louis provided me with this photo.  This giraffe sits in front of Children's Hospital.  

I snapped this shot during a trip to Branson, Missouri.  We were there the day after the recent tornados and I was delighted to find this watering can still standing.  It sits in what was a miniature golf course and a good bit of the course was a pile of rubble.   

This forsythia sits beside my sister's porch in Omaha.  It is very rare to find plants even starting to bud out in mid-March, so having plants in full bloom is extra special.  In fact the temperature while we were there was breaking records almost every day.  It was in the mid eighties the day we left to come home.   

I hope you enjoyed my shares today, and may this sunny color brighten you day as much as it does my kitchen.
