Yellow makes me happy.   I think it might be that way because we just came through the winter season and the yellow flowers are the perfect indication  that Spring is almost here.

I read a quote recently that stated my sentiments about this color; "Yellow is psychologically the happiest color in the spectrum." 




"Yellow's appearance in the garden has a stimulating effect."

~quotes from "scentsationalcolor.com"




A glass or orange juice is the way I start every day.  It is the best start to my day, before my cups of coffee.




Looking forward the the tulips blooming in the garden.  This picture was taken last Spring.



Yellow and purple pansies are a pretty combination.

In fact, I read that "yellow's complimentary color in the garden is purple."

"Yellow flowers come forward in the landscape, helping to make your garden feel cozier."

~quotes from "scentsationalcolor.com"


"Lemon peel;  a very strong fresh lemon scent.  Great for summer.  Very refreshing.  Aromatherapy benefits;  uplifting, refreshing, cheering, stimulating, rejuvenating."

~from "Scent It.com"

This is my favorite way to drink my glasses of iced water...with cleaned lemons slices.




Yellow daffodils always remind me of my mother.  At her previous home, she planted many daffodil bulbs that bloomed every Spring.   I also have memories of my dad and I tying the foliage of the daffodils together and knotting them, after the daffodils stopped blooming.  I am thankful for the appreciation of daffodils that my mother instilled in me.

Forsythia will soon be blooming in our county too.  We seem to have an abundance of forsythia bushes.

Hope this dose of yellow, adds happiness to your day today!

Hi Judy. :) I was just walking around the yard today thinking how beautiful the daffodils are. It's such a relief to see something bright and pretty after a winter.

So nice to hear from you, Judy! I had somehow lost track of you, if that is possible. I checked you out and yes... the beautiful face I met last summer ... that is you.
Wishing you lots of yellow!
