The color of sunshine. Of zing and zip and zest. Yellow sings “welcome back to life!”

My perfect little cottage, the one that exists (for now) only in my mind is yellow. A delicious mix of lemon and cream. A bashful, mellow yellow .

It’s ringed with blooms that caress the eye and hush the hurried heart.

Dainty blooms belong on the dinner table too. Sweet daisy chains of domesticity. Whispering comfort.

Yellow is the face of homegrown grace. Cheerful, unhurried, unfurling its charms to passersby.
