Yellow daisy (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul." ~ Luther Burbank (1849 - 1926) US naturalist
Someone I know loves yellow; the color of the sun. Bright and cheerful, it chases away the shadows of the night each dawn. Yellow is hopeful, warm, inviting and comforting. It reminds of the renewal of life in Spring with daffodils, buttercups and forsythia; of the tenacity of life in Summer with the dandelion and daisy; and the fullness and cycle of life in Fall as the leaves turn a golden yellow and flutter to the ground.

For now, it is Summer and the daisy reigns.
