This month we will be looking for Yellow. A bright and happy colour and often associated with spring. The sun in the sky, heat and light. What yellows can you find in your world?

Colman’s is an English manufacturer of mustard and other sauces, formally based and produced for 160 years at Carrow, in Norwich, Norfolk. The plant closed its doors in July 2019. The last run of Colman’s mustard jars on the line replaced the “best before” date with the message “Norwich’s Last. By Its Finest. July 24th 2019”

A bonus Yellow

Gloria (Lisbon) and Woman in Yellow

The Elevador de Santa Glória is a tram that departs from Praca dos Restauradores and in a few minutes it takes you up a very steep alley. It has been a service since 1885 and has been powered by electricity since 1915. The journey is only 200 meters but it is always crowded with tourists and locals who want to spare themselves the trouble of climbing on foot. Worth taking a short ride on this funicular up to a beautiful look-out point the Miradouro (viewpoint) de São Pedro de Alcantara, the best known and most visited viewpoint of Bairro Alto from where one has a panoramic view of downtown Lisbon and across to the castle.

“There are painters who
transform the sun
to a yellow spot,
but there are others who with the help of their art and
their intelligence
transform a yellow spot
into the sun”

~Pablo Picasso

Remember to look for yellow in less obvious places. It may not be the focus of your photo, but it should certainly catch the eye.

Another  bonus brown

The Brown argus is a small butterfly that is on the wing throughout the summer, between May and September. Adults feed on Common Rock-rose, which is also the caterpillars’ foodplant, together with various species like Crane’s-bills.

The Brown argus has bronzy-brown upperwings with an orange band of spots across the edge of each wing. It is very similar to the female Common Blue, but tends to be smaller, with no hint of blue in the wings.
