Y - Yellow

 When I was a kid my favorite color was yellow.  And I still like it a lot.  It looks great on walls, especially in hot climates.  These walls are from Mexico and the American Southwest.

Some are mellow, some are sharp. 

I don't know how well yellow translates to exterior walls in the Pacific Northwest.  It can seem garish in the cooler light.  But in the south it's fabulous.

 And yellow shines in flowers.


What would our landscapes look like without yellow?  Pretty cool and/or drab, I think.

Yellow is the color of autumn trees, flame,  custard and squash soup--and of course lemons.

Yellow is such a cheery color.  I'm so grateful for yellow!



  1. Yes, it is a great color and I especially love the fourth photo of the shadow on the wall.

    Lovely !

    cheers, parsnip

  2. Yummy Yellow! The Queen wore it this morning...

  3. I kind of like the few yellow houses here. In the winter they make cheerful and bright sparks of color when everything else is gray. Nice post and great selection of yellow.

  4. For some inexplicable reason, I have a mad craving for a lemon tart...

    I love Queen Elizabeth's yellow suit and hat she wore to the wedding today. She looked wonderful

  5. Wow, what wonderful photos! I especially love the Mexican and Southwestern architecture. Great Y post, yellow is one of my favorite colors. :)

  6. my favorite now and forever...
    Y - yellow!
