A Word a Week Challenge: Yellow

Every week Sue from ‘A Word in Your Ear’ dips into her English Oxford dictionary and picks a word on the page that it falls open at. The challenge is to post a photograph, poem, story – whatever the genre you like best to describe what that word means to you.

Yellow is an unusual colour for houses to be painted, but here in Ludlow there are two. Both timber-framed buildings with the frames revealed.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

      1. Yes, Jude, I’m enjoying California very much! No snow here of course, and it’s a little colder than I’d like, but it’s great to be traveling again. 🙂

  1. Can’t beat good old ‘Merrie England’ for some nice colours Jude. And not too far for you to travel, on this occasion.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

  2. I’ll echo what catbirdinamerica wrote. I don’t know why Anglo-American culture generally eschews bright houses, but I wish we’d loosen up and be bolder.
