Looking around, I’m in a panic because today is
What to write about. I just wrote about an orange bird. Do I really want to write about a yellow duck? My drake, Quackers, is in the back. He’s eleven years old, quite old for a little yellow duck.
My house is surprisingly devoid of yellow. Outside gave me a bit more to choose from. There was a swallowtail butterfly with its beautiful yellow markings. This year we have a huge number of butterflies, so much so that they even did a news story about it. I’m not sure it’s worthy of a news story, but it certainly makes for a lot of great photo opportunities.
The garden spider is a bright lethal arachnid. Look, it even caught a yellow butterfly. That works nicely with a yellow post.
The surprise lily has a bright yellow center that is so cheerful. These flowers start as thick-bladed green plants in the spring. The plant dies down, and in August, surprise! These long-stemmed delicate flowers seem to appear by magic. Be careful, though because they are very poisonous.
The luffa gourd’s blossom is yellow all over. It is bright and attracts the insects. The gourd requires a fairly long growing season. I started mine indoors in March. I’m hoping we have a late freeze and I get some gourds. They are said to make the strongest and best natural sponges you can get.
How wonderful! There is so much beautiful yellow out there. It’s just a color that you have to take the time to notice.
Now it’s time to head over to Jenny’s and read some more posts for Alphabe-Thursday!
