Mellow Yellow Monday #179

I stumbled upon Mellow Yellow Monday, whose specialty is all things yellow. Intrigued, as yellow is my favorite color, I decided to interject some “sunshine” for the winter months.  With approaching spring, I still enjoy the weekly boost of yellow — so I will continue with Monday Sunshine.

Why not join in the sunshine fun?

  2. That would be in my list of plants for next year. Lovely shots. Visiting a little late for mellow yellow.

    Come and take a peek at my yummy yellow, you can grab a bite if you want to but your comment would really make my day!

    I have loved these yellow cucumber blooms my entire life! As a small child, I wanted to pick them and put them by my own mother’s bedside, but was told we could not have cucumbers and bread-and-butter pickles (which I crave to this day!) if I did that! Thanks for the great memories this post triggered, dear sister Becca!

      My mom doesn’t usually plant veggies, but for some reason she asked my brother to find her some cucumber seeds. He wisely concluded it would be faster to find her plants – she wouldn’t have to wait as long to get results. She is looking forward to her first crop. Based on the abundance of flowers from these two plants when I was home 10 days ago — she should have a bumper crop to enjoy! Wish I would be home to enjoy them as well!! When I was young, and my dad was still practicing … often his patients paid him with currency of homegrown vegetables, fruits, and seafood. What a delight and appreciation ~~

  8. What a great idea. Mellow Yellow Mondays. I believe I will join you even though my favorite is

    Our cucumber plants have stalled – our summer is just so cool and wet, and just not growing weather. I might have to buy cucumber this year!
