Project Spectrum - Yellow

I've been watching for yellow in my daily life of late because of Project Spectrum. Though I don't normally wear yellow or want to knit or sew with yellow as a main color, I love it as an accent. Having said that I will confess to having yellow in my life in a big way, almost daily, as evidenced by the first picture.

Princess and I spend many hours in yellow driving to class and rehearsals. I have to say that driving a happy yellow car makes me a nicer, more friendly motorist. Is that possible?

After the final performance, we motored south to the beach to find more yellow. Accents of yellow abounded. Since I was focusing on finding yellow, I saw it everywhere. Here are a few examples:

the newspaper receptacle

the sunset,

the palmetto,

the buds of unidentified wildflowers,

the centers of water lilies,

and the eyes of the locals.
Nature seems to prefer yellow as an accent as well.

I love the way you think.

And I think of you every time I see a VW Beetle, believe it or not. I always wonder what fuel it's running on :-)

I have a lot of yellow in my house because northern winters are dreary and I need the pick-me-up. In the garden, yellow is an accent, even when it makes its appearance in the lower leaves of the eggplant trio. In the lawn it's a beautiful reminder not to go chemical against the weeds. I like the dainty buttercups for making me notice the crabgrass less.

Yellow is good.

And even if I don't generally care for Coldplay, "Yellow" is a song that makes me smile.

It must be like driving around in sunshine all the time! I love it!
I have always been a yellow as accent girl as well, but this year I bought a pair of bright yellow Land's end shorts! maybe it was unconscious sun seeking amid the rain! Hoping to send it your way...

I know I've been away for a while. We've had a few changes in our family, including moving back to Mississippi. I was hoping to see what you've been up to, but it looks like you've been away. I hope you come back soon!

Checking in -- life has been so busy with older kids, we can do more hs'ing, more farming, more everything! But less time for life online. Bloglines is over at the end of the month and before we take off for two months, I'm moving my subscriptions to Google Reader, which I think I hate. So I'm going through my lists and revisiting some old friends -- hope all is well with you and your family : ).
