Mellow Yellow Favorites

Daffodils, yellow swallowtail butterfly and a dapper goldfinch.

"A parallel between color and music can only be relative – just as a violin can give warm shades of tone, so yellow has shades, which can be expressed by various instruments." ~ Wassily Kandinsky

My brother leaves tomorrow to return to Europe... so the color for today would be more of a gray or blue to match my mood. He is my younger brother, but through the years he has become my best friend. The world seems to be brighter and filled with more sunshine when he is here. So, perhaps a mellow yellow is the right theme for the day!

We have so much yellow around here, but these are a few of the favorites.... an unusual daffodil from the Norfolk Botanical Garden, a swallowtail butterfly feasting on the nectar of Joe Pye Weed at the edge of the preserve that backs onto our property and a male goldfinch in his summer "mating" colors. How can you feel blue with all this yellow in your life? Nope, not possible.
