Y/Alphabe-Thurday

 Yellow daffodil with orange

Y is for YELLOW in my YARD

I have been out gardening and I dirty knees to prove it! The weather has suddenly turned wonderful! These daffodils are soaking up some sunshine.

Yellow forsythia

The forsythia bush out front is also celebrating the fine weather.

 Yellow dandelion

Oh, yes, I do have these dandy little blossoms in my yard. It saddens me that so many people think they are ugly. They don't last long so I enjoy them while they bloom.

 Oops! RED tulips

These tulips are indeed red but if you look carefully you can see some yellow on both blossoms.

Grape hyacinths and bumblebee

Yep, blue flowers, but look at that bumblebee with yellow fuzz.

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

The first glimpses of spring and sunshine are such a treasure; love the bumblebee in the grape hyacinths!

Camera Girl we have had a late arrival of spring only to watch it burst out in a matter of a few days. Your photos are a splendid expression of what we have been experiencing here.

Hey I like dandelions, I'm my father's son and the motto is "If it is green it is good." Or yellow for that matter.
