Today, it's yellow

Yellow has many connotations. Some are negative, such as cowardly, “yellow-bellied”, porn movies (in China), jaundiced, “old and yellowed”, and “yellow journalism.” Others are positive, referring to sunshine, colors of birds and blossoms, cheerfulness, school buses, taxicabs, lemons. And the rich color of this daffodil.

There are painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, thanks to their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun.
~ Pablo Picasso

I'll just call you mellow yellow! Beautiful bright yellow; how can you not smile when you see these flowers? Daffodils are mostly gone here now, unfortunately.

Smile here, too :>)
Since spring is later this year, there are still a fair amount of daffodils and other flowers.
