Sunday with Cindy: Color Inspiration Yellow
Spring is in the air! I love this time of year, the spring daffodils pop out of the ground and scream, "Spring!" I'm a yellow lover - all kinds of yellow so today, before we peruse the paper, I'd like to share a little color inspiration with you. I went to Flickr and typed in the word "yellow" and got a mountain of lovely photos - here are just two of them:
Yellow Flame Tree taken by Natasha on Flickr
Yellow Rose taken by comin or goin on Flickr
A pale yellow in this forsythia in my backyard, taken last week!
Ahhhhh...now that we've warmed up our eyes with color inspiration, let's see what's going on with the beady news....
