Friday's Photo Hunt Arrives on Saturday

  Rudbeckia blossoms


 For the week of June 17th
One. Starts with Y
Two. Week's Favourite
Three. In My Shoes

ONE. Starts with Y ... The Colour Yellow
 The color between orange and green in the color spectrum

Yellow-Petaled Pansies
One of the more fragrant of the pansy family

Yellow-Centred Crocus
A flower from which the world's sought-after saffron is harvested

The comforting soft yellow light of a lamp
As evening shadows gather

Quotes Starting With "Y" Words...
* * *
 Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world.
Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.

* * *
You can complain because roses have thorns,
or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.
~ Ziggy

You need to learn how to select your thoughts
just the same way you select your clothes every day.
This is a power you can cultivate.
~ Elizabeth Gilbert, "Eat, Pray, Love"

Two. Week's Favourite
Our Mock Orange
This shrub is creating a flurry of gorgeous in the corner of my garden today. I love how the blue, clear sky creates a perfect foil for her white petals. I so wish I could capture the sweet fragrance that is wafting on the breezes -- I'd share it with you. All this beauty right outside my kitchen window. So much for which to be grateful!


Three. In My Shoes

My black L.L. Bean comfy slippers

The shoes meant for indoors only--haha--except I wear them when I sit on the deck, when I'm taking out just this little bag of garbage, or, when I'm off to pick a little posy and I really won't step in the dirt to reach for that blossom. Aha ...

On that note, I'm wishing you from the bottom of my heart,
a pleasant and heart-comforted weekend!

With love and hugs,

Joining Eden Hills this weekend for Friday's Hunt



  1. You do such beautiful work with your blog! I'm reminded of the mock orange that my grandmother grew. Such an aroma!! I make myself take my comfy slippers off in lieu of outside slip-ons when I head outside. It's so tempting to keep them on! xo Nellie

  2. great photos, enjoy the peace of today the Sabbath!

  3. You always share the nicest quotes Brenda and I like your comfy slippers.
    I hope Father's Day is bright and sunny.

  4. I think that I'm going to start my own quote book so that I can record the thoughtful quotes that you share!

  5. I love that Rumi quote/poem - and your shoes/slippers are cute! If they are also that comfortable, no wonder you wear them all the time :-)

  6. Yellow is such a great color. I'll add it to any other color that I might wear or even around the house. I think it goes with everything!

    "There is no blue without yellow and without orange". ~ Vincent Van Gogh ~

  7. Oh I love LL Bean slippers and I am glad that you do, too. I also tend to use mine in the great world beyond, too. I had no idea that saffron came from crocus centers. Wonderful to learn new things.

  8. Hope you had a great weekend and are having a great week!

  9. Beautiful yellows! Love the mock orange. My mother has one, and I love its gorgeous scent! The shoes do look cozy. Thank you so much for joining Friday's Hunt. Have a great week ahead!

  10. Lovely, Brenda. I am partial to yellow myself. I love the lamplight in your sitting room :) I've always wanted a mock the quotes, especially the Elizabeth Gilbert quote. Comfy shoes are the only ones I wear is too short to walk in uncomfortable shoes! Sending hugs and blessings xo Karen

  11. The shade of yellow in that room is perfect. I love yellow too and have dots of it in our bedroom.

  12. Love your choices for Friday Hunt! Especially the yellow flower:) But the quote of Shubert really got me! Thank you for visiting me:) I had trouble of thinking of something off the grid for the "in my shoes," but you did great:)

    You might like to consider joining SEASONS the was started a few months ago, where any experience during the Season is a great subject! The photo link is open from Sunday (12 am) to Wednesday 7pm Pacific time. So, you could even still get in on it this week,
    Hope to see you this, or next week:) It is always in a post where the first word of the title is SEASONS:):)

  13. My Grandparents had a mock orange bush, and I do remember that lovely scent!

  14. Yellow has never been much of my color, but I do love yellow crocuses and pansies. The lamplight in the room glows a welcome to anyone who enters.

  15. Ah Brenda lovely photos as well as thoughts. My folks have a nick orange shrub. It is so fragrant. Thanks for your cheery post. Have a wonderful day. Hugs!
