They were all Yellow

I always associate the color yellow with Spring.
Don’t you???

It’s a Happy Color
….then again I think that holds true about Pink too.

It’s fun to watch what colors customers like and are drawn to.
Some like very bright color combos….
some more muted and pastel.
I’ve run the gambit myself and have experimented with all colors at one time.
Every Spring I used to like to wait until something struck me….
and when it did.
Hold on!!!!!!!  I was obsessed in searching out what plants
would fit the bill.
To the point that I would get really distracted at work.
It was all I could think about.
Really gets your blood pumping when you have a vision.
It’s quite a rush.

Your flower photos are stunning! I do the same thing, changing color favorites from year to year. This year it's purple and yellow, with a quite a bit of pink from last year appearing too :-)
Have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. My nephew that was injured has the same last name as you do. I think I may have told you that was my maiden name :-)

Your pictures are beautiful Carole, so sunny although for me Spring is not yellow, because it's al about blue right now in my garden and purple, Summer is pink and white, Autumn is red/yellow and Winter is green/white/red.
Happy May day's to you!

Oh my I should just start each day looking at your pictures - Gorgeous! I love colors and how they make us feel. I used to work for a paint company and fell in love with a yellow called paper lantern. I've taken it with me on several moves. It was my dining room color in two homes and is now my laundry room color. Anything to make laundry a happy thing, I didn't really need help associating dining with being happy.

Those sweet viola(pansies) that are yellow with purple edges are delightful.
Enjoy your weekend too.
Rain is in our forecast.

Yellow? It's sunny and lemony and at least it's not orange! I like yellows and blues together. Your photos are just beautiful!

moosecraft said...

Yellow is the color of sunshine! So, I LOVE IT! Bright yellow for flowers... but, a soft, butter yellow for clothes... :-)

traci said...

Just call me Ol' Yeller...I love it! I was looking at yellow roses at the nursery just this week.

It's quite a while ago that I had a phase when I loved the combination of blue and yellow. Right now I'm not so drawn to yellow, especially when it's bright but I still like it better than orange :-).
I'm so sorry that you missed Brimfield! I know that you like to go on the hunt. Hopefully you'll find the time to visit another great flea market soon.
Have a wonderful weekend, dear Carole!
Hugs to you, my friend


Yellow is mello, it has a very calming effect on me.................I especially love it with red in my home at night it gives a very nice soft antique glow.................Hugs Mary said...

What gorgeous pictures! I agree yellow is a happy color. Your greenhouses must be soooo happy right now:)I always have to have some yellow in my gardens to make me smile. Hope your weekend is a great one:)

Such beautiful photos Carole. I think yellow is a such "happy" color. You're so lucky to be surrounded by such beauties everyday. I know it's hard work though.

Enjoy the weekend.


Olive Cooper said...

I adore yellow. It is both calming and happy for me. I have many yellows in my flower garden and I painted our main rooms a soft butter color which is wicked to photograph but makes antiques look good.

vicki said...

Oh Carole - I love yellow - it is my summer favorite! Your photos are fabulous - another beautiful spring at your greenhouse! Youor flowers have inspired me - I am going to be a yellow girl this summer with my plantings. Can't wait!

I am loving the photos of your sweet kitties on your sidebar - we just love our kitty babies!


Dorthe said...

Carole, -for me spring is about soft pink-and white-
your yellow photoes and flowers are fantastic,-but I don`t have much yellow in my garden :)

Denise said...

I love yellow. It's fabulous for pretty "curb appeal." Pansies are among my favorite flowers. They come in so many fabulous colors. A friend of mine had some yummy orange pansies. Hope you are doing well. How are all of the kitties? Spoiled rotten, I'm sure! :)

Gloria said...

Hola Carole! No soy amante de este color, pero las flores lucen hermosas!El amarillo, según varios artistas producen efectos varios, pero sí se dice y se siente como un color pleno de luz del sol, y energético! Irradia mucha luz, contagia vida. Un beso, Gloria.

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Carole,

Your photographs are beautiful with all the amazing yellow flowers you have growing at your place.
I especially love the pansies.
I think about the only yellow I have in my garden is freesias, when they come out. I normally prefer, blues, lavender, pinks and white.

Hope that you are enjoying your weekend

you just made me wish I was shopping for flowers right now...Yellow is one of my favorite flower colors! And you are right, it definitely makes you think spring!!

Take care,

A Cottage Muse said...

Yellow is the color of Spring for me...I remember a bouquet of yellow flowers in my Mom's blue and white kitchen every Spring!

Now I have my own blue and white kitchen and am doing the same thing!

Jacqueline said...

Hi Carole,
Yellow is, indeed the colour of Spring and is such a cheerful colour. It isn't my fvourite colour for flowers though. I do love white, lilacs and pinks and lots of green foliage. myself. Because we have had such wonderful weather over here ( the warmest April for 400 years !!) everything is very early. It is much colder now so, I am not filling my pots until the end of May. That's when we can be sure that there won't be any frost.
Your photos are beautiful. Are they all taken in your Nursery ? I wish that I could be one of your customer's !! Much love. XXXX

My sister's favorite color was yellow - so whenever I see it, it brings a smile to my face.

Hope all is happy at your house. It is still snowing here, but any form of moisture is welcome! :)
