Mellow Yellow

Sunday, 24 July 2011


Goldenrod and yellow daisies are the only flowers in my garden at the moment.



More squares for my cookbook blanket.

  1. They do indeed call it mellow yellow. For good reason I think. It's a lovely happy colour! With lemons you get the vibrant alive smell too. Who isn't uplifted when they see buttercups or the first daffodils of Spring? Yet it is supposed to be a difficult colour to wear. I do wear it though. It does however, tend to be paler lemon yellow, which I find a nice flattering colour.

    Love your pictures of sunshine. It's a bit grey here at the moment so its nice to have some cheery colour. I've heard of and even had herbal tea with golden rod in it but I never knew what the flowers looked like. Rather lovely they are too. Lemon barley was a favourite as a child. I have never had a homemade version. I bet it's good!

  6. Your cook book squares remind me of a lemon tart, such beautiful colors. Just had a look at your sampler page, it's a feast for the eyes, you will have to put these 'Mellow Yellow' photos in there.

  7. Beautiful. It is not surprising that my children all claim that yellow is their favourite colour.

    Did I hear someone mention lemon tarts? One of my favourite French desserts.

  10. Annabella, there were 10 others that got deleted. I sometimes think the key to good photos is to take plenty of them.
