Life in Colour

A bonus Yellow

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. So many yellow flowers, I could probably post one a day for an entire year! But I won’t. This is a special one though. I do love Aussie flora.

      1. Novak, I suppose. He responded very well to Karatsev. But Medvedev could do it. I don’t really care cos I don’t like either of them. My preference would probably be Tsitsipas, but let the best man win 🤣🎾💕

        1. Cornwall has always been a poor county – relies heavily on tourism and when people started to go on cheap European holidays that declined too. Only fishing and agriculture – none of which bring in a huge amount of money. So many second homes that locals are priced out of buying in their own county. But it is a great place for artists and creative folk and small entrepreneurs. The poverty shown on that program is no worse than many other towns and cities in the UK. It’s criminal to me that anyone hasn’t enough to live on in the 21st century. But everyone seems to afford a phone and smart TV. Not like when I was poor.

        2. Much like Australian country towns. When the industry declines towns slow, houses are relatively cheap and city folk buy renovate. Then rents or resale price locals out. The shit that people buy when they have no money…..

    1. They are lovely – they flower from stem to tip. We get smaller ones here in Cornwall, usually red or pink, but I did see some up in the Logan Botanic Garden in Scotland too! I think my garden is too windy for them as they like some shelter.

  1. The challenge is just too soon for me but by next week my Mimosa may be out and the daffodils surely can’t hide much longer. Today’s sunshine I’m hoping will hasten their blossoming.

    1. My daffs are beginning to show their colours now, a little later than last year, and yellow crocuses are out. I’d love to see your Mimosa – you have another two weeks, so let’s hope for some sunshine!
