Yellow is a Yummy Color

This is dedicated to my Friend:
Yellow; is it a color we take for granted?
yel·low (yl)n.
a. The hue of that portion of the visible spectrum lying between orange and green, evoked in the human observer by radiant energy with wavelengths of approximately 570 to 590 nanometers; any of a group of colors of a hue resembling that of ripe lemons and varying in lightness and saturation; one of the subtractive primaries; one of the psychological primary hues.
b. A pigment or dye having this hue.
c. Something that has this hue.
2. Chiefly Southern U.S. The yolk of an egg.

3. Western U.S. Gold. Used formerly by prospectors.

Gold and radiant energy are 2 ways it is thought of.
Radiant energy can take a wide variety of forms; that says a lot to me and it sounds so ethereal. Like an energy so powerful it is emitted in light rays : )
What do you think of when yellow is said?
Sunshine, Happy, Bright, Joyful, Cheerful,
Yellow Bunnies cake?

Yellow Flowers?

More Yellow Flowers?
Are own special star:

The planet Venus is seen by NASA's TRACE satellite, at the start of its transit across the sun on June 8, 2004. What an amazing photograph!!!
The Sun has been out there in all it's glory; heating our planet, making our crops grow and just making us feel good basking in it's light.
A Yellow Lab puppy?

Corn on the Cob?

A Yellow painted Bedroom?

Yellow frosted cookies?

Colors are such a cool way to bring out happiness.
I too like the color yellow as it makes me think of Holland and France.
Holland for the fields of Yellow Tulips
the meadows of Yellow wild flowers in France are both breath taking.
When I stood in Vincent van Gogh's museum in Amsterdam and gazed upon his painting Sunflowers it was one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life!!!

Tina: Wanted to let you know I like the color Yellow too : )

  2. My daughter's favorite color is yellow. I painted her room sunflower yellow one time and she just recently told me that she didn't like it but was afraid to hurt my feelings. Silly girl!

  3. Yellow is the most cheerful color - how can you be sad when you are surrounded by it? My entire downstairs is yellow as if the sun is always shining. :-) Wonderful examples of yellow, Carole!
