Colorful Monday..

MellowYellowMondayBadgeColor~~on Mondays


I so love Color!
Blue is my most favorite,
followed by Yellow ..
and finally Red..
All of my life I have adored White..
whether it be Clothing,
Furniture..
or a simple Picket Fence
Maybe those colors represent MY Florida..
the sunshine,
the blues and greens of the crystal waters..
red swimsuits,
boards,
and umbrellas here and there,,
all splashed brightly  against  the pallet of sugary white sand..
Those very same colors  are found in my favorite flowers
Yellow Roses..
to me..the color of sunshine..
















Blue Hydrangeas..
ever changing like the shades of blues in the Gulf of Mexico..
















The reds will surface on another day..
and no post would be complete without a beachy scene or two..















One of my most favorite scenes..
















And another ..

and my son.. the most favorite vision of all!

  2. Although I like hydrangeas (and prefer the blue to the pink) I really much prefer the small delicate many headed yellow rose. ANd often is has a very strong perfume that wafts across the summer evening. Delightful.

  15. Beautiful yellow flowers and you know the plumerias are my favorite!

    I didn't know your son is a surfer, very cool! I think you missed the post I did the other day with an amazing new camera for surfers (and others), but it has the coolest surfing video I've ever seen. Your son might like to see it.

welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
