Yellow, the colour of summer, of dry grass and dusty pollen. The colour of stripes on bees, kooky caterpillars, and the sweetest little butterflies. Yellow paper daisies, roses, sunflowers, pansies and chrysanthemums. Yearning for yellow through the grey months of winter.
Yellow grapefruit - emptied to make a solstice lantern, yellow lemons slowly ripening on the tree, a glut of golden corn cut and frozen for later, yellow spaghetti squash waiting to be eaten, yellow peppers and tomatoes clinging on for dear life despite the blizzard blowing around them. Yellow in the pantry, yellow jelly, mustard, saffron, butter and pickles.
The colour of childhood. Yellow has been the favourite colour of many little boys I know, including our own. A yellow teddy, gum boots, slide, bat, trucks, buses, books, bunting. Our kitchen, lounge, and bathroom are all a cheery bright yellow. Vintage yellow - a yellow striped jug from my mother outlaw and a garage sale yellow teapot, a yellow cat waving on a biscuit jar and a yellow pineapple votive.
