It was all Yellow

Snippets around my home today by me

Yesterday I got some roses from my local rose farm. I usually go for pinks or reds but I decided these looked so pretty. Then I started noticing this colour was already a favourite at home. Funny how your subconscious works.

  5. Yellow is such a bright, happy color! And yellow roses are my favorite flower (well, my second favorite actually, my favorite is pink tulips!), and I love how you displayed the yellow roses in the blue vase, such a pretty combination!
    You found some wonderful treasures on ebay, you lucky girl!
    Enjoy!
    All the best,
    Eileen

  11. mmmm so pretty.
    It is funny because over here in Canada we are going into fall so I feel like I get to enjoy "it all" when I go to the blogs from the other side of the world where spring is in the air.
