PhotoHunt Theme: Yellow


"YELLOW" is the theme this week.
~~~
~~
Since Spring began here yesterday I am looking forward to seein
g
lots
of early Spring YELLOW flowers in today's PhotoHunt!
I even have a few myself!
~~~~~
Fir
st, though, I have a very important YELLOW and that is the caution sign. Whenever you see strips of YELLOW tape saying "caution" you know you need to be cautious! This YELLOW tape is around two holes that were dug by our water company to fix their leaking water pipe, which was unfortunately leaking into our basement. Thank goodness that was fixed, with no charge to us, and now the YELLOW caution tapes are gone. Hopefully by summer the lawn will also be fixed back to the way it was!
Last August we stayed overnight at a bed and breakfast, near our favorite winery, Sugar Creek. On some Friday nights in the summer the winery has a band playing from 7:00 until 10:00 pm. It looks so pretty as there are candles on all the tables and around the perimeter of the wine garden. Since we didn't want to drive home on the very curvy roads, we had made reservations at a local bread and breakfast. The next day we stopped by the local brewery for lunch and found all these lovely YELLOW Black-eyed Susans in the beer garden!
We had to try the brewery's Hefeweizen, which is an unfiltered wheat beer. It is one of my favorite beers and is generally served with a slice of YELLOW lemon. Actually the Hefeweizen is a golden shade of YELLOW, as is the golden mustard served with a pretzel.
My husband chose to have a very YELLOW mustard
on his bratwurst with sauerkraut.

Later that same August, we went to a beautiful park near our house.
We brought cheese and crackers to snack on and a bottle of
YELLOW Tail Chardonnay to enjoy the afternoon.

At Christmas time China Cat and Willow both got very possessive over a YELLOW catnip banana that they received. No cats were injured in the YELLOW Banana Tussle!
As always, you can find more of Tnchick's Photohunters here!

I think the ribbon trumps all - most important.

Like wheat beer -- with or without a lemon in it. As for bratwurst (and other sausages in a bun): strange but true: I like them topped with sauerkraut *and* ketchup -- though at a hot dog place here in Hong Kong where you can put stuff on yourself, I go the whole hog and add relish and raw onions as well as sauerkraut and ketchup! ;)

Great choices for the theme. Most of my yellow photos are flowers-can't help it, one of my favorite floral colors.

Great photos for yellow. I have not tried that beer; I am not a fan in general. I do like sauerkraut though. Makes me think it is about time I cooked some up for a meal.

Hootin' Anni said...

All Of These!!! Excellent. But for some reason, now, I'm starved for sauerkraut and yellow mustard!

Sweetanlo said...
