Mellow Yellow Monday

Mellow Yellow Poppies

One cold wintry day not so long ago, I happened upon these bright silk poppies in a local shop. Even if I had to go without bread that day (which I didn't) I knew I had to take this cheery bunch home with me.

Then, I stumbled upon a blogger who designed a meme called Mellow Yellow Mondays. The author says she chose yellow because "it's my favourite colour and I think the world is always better with a splash of yellow....whether it's in your home or in nature."

How's that for perfect timing? I couldn't agree more! So on this beautifully sunny -- but very wintry -- Monday, I'm happy to share my yellow contribution to Mellow Yellow Monday #8.

    yellow flowers in my life. was at one time i couldn't stand the color
    yellow. then as I got closer to
    God by reading His word, etc. one day I noticed I really like the color yellow.
    My house is even painted
    yellow (ha ha) One of these
    magazine quizes stated that if you
    liked yellow it means you are happy, so see before I was not happy (i know that) Interesting?????
