Happy Yellows

by Deanna

If any of you follow my personal blog, Snippets from Springdale, you know that this has been a pretty tough couple of weeks for me.....finding out that my sweetie's current Memory Care Facility could no longer care for him in his decline, searching for a new facility, making the decision and finally moving him today has been REALLY stressful.  So to regain some happiness and put back the sunshine in my life, I decided to focus on a "happy" color...YELLOW.

No one can deny that yellow is one of the happiest colors in our rainbow and with that theme in mind I set out to capture some of the Yellows of Summer.

The bees of summer....


A lovely summertime bouquet filled with lots of yellow....


Those sweet Rainier Cherries....


Yellow sunflowers...screams summertime & happiness.


And my Black Eyed Susans speak volumes.....


And ofcourse the Daylily....this one not only is a brilliant yellow but it has an aroma like perfume....


Summertime tables set with yellow lemons...


And yellow hair moppets.....


All combined bring back the sunshine into my life.....

Sure hope my yellows brought you some happiness.  What color or colors help you when you are "blue"?  We'd love to hear what some of your favorite summertime colors are.

Love your yellow photos. My color would probably be green, because I find it relaxing which makes me happy. Off to read your blog...

Yellow is such a happy color, isn't it? I don't think there's really one color that puts a smile on my face. All color, any color does the trick! Glad Yellow did the trick for you. :)

Deanna, this is such a beautiful post that brought smiles to my face! I'm so sorry to hear about your stressful time! This post shows your positive attitude to keep on going through it all! The color that makes me happy is blue!

Hope all of this happy yellow helped to lighten your mood. I know it sure made me happy this morning! I think the color that makes me happiest is pink, from a pale hint of it to a bright or deep tone. Whenever I buy flowers, they are always pink and they never cease to make me happy!

Beautiful photos, as usual.

Hope all goes well, with your sweetie.

There are so many beautiful yellows, out there. My friend says, yellow must be one of God's favorite colors.

Have a good weekend.

Bless you Deanna! I know this has been a tough time for you and yet you not only gave yourself a little happy sunshine, you generously gave some to all of us as well. This post instantly put a smile on my face, something I was in desperate need of at the moment. Your images are gorgeous - as always. Have a beautiful weekend.
