The Cheeriness of Spring



 
Last year it was cherry blossom trees. This year it is bright golden tulips that make me catch my breath every time I spot one.

For me these flowers personify happiness. I see them and they make my heart feel light. They are refreshing. They are cheerful. They are my happy feeling.
*
When I gaze at them they pull me in and they capture my full attention. For the few seconds they have power over me, I am able to forget everything else as I revel in their beauty, in the hope they exude. They make my mind wander and wonder about all the many and glorious things I can accomplish in my life. They truly bring a smile to my face and they make me feel as if I can conquer anything.
*
This is what Spring is all about.

I do love yellow.It probably doesn’t surprise you that it is my favorite color. It brings me sunshine and happiness … and tulips.

  2. This is my favourite colour.....
    The colour of your site (burgundy, dark red wine and rose colour)
    This colour in a velvet dress with a 14 carat diamond pendant, matching ear rings and a ring, is a perfect combination for a "lady" going to the Metropolitan Opera , to listen to W. A Mozart.
    What say you?

    "Dark red is associated with vigor, willpower, rage, anger, leadership, courage, longing, malice, and wrath."
    (I am harmless, seldom angry , and thank GOD sober since Nov. the 12th 1990)

    As for your colour Princess of Bratislava,


    "Yellow is the color of sunshine. It's associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy.

    Yellow produces a warming effect, arouses cheerfulness, stimulates mental activity, and generates muscle energy. In heraldry, yellow indicates honor and loyalty. Later the meaning of yellow was connected with cowardice.

    Use yellow to evoke pleasant, cheerful feelings. You can choose yellow to promote children's products and items related to leisure. Yellow is very effective for attracting attention, so use it to highlight the most important elements of your design.

    Love always

  5. I totally agree with you dear Vartkes...Yellow is sunshine. Yellow produces a warming effect, arouses cheerfulness, stimulates mental activity.

    For years yellow ribbons were worn as a sign of hope as women waited from their men to come marching home from war. Today, they are still used to welcome home loved ones. Its use for hazard signs creates an association between yellow and danger, although not quite as dangerous as red.

    Thank you for your visit Vartkes...Have a sunny day...

  6. Color Yellow

    The shade of yellow determines the meaning. Pure, bright and sunny yellow is the easiest color to see. People who are blind to other colors can usually see yellow. Yellow is full of creative and intellectual energy. Always use yellow note pads.
    Yellow symbolizes wisdom. Yellow means joy and happiness. People of high intellect favor yellow. Yellow daffodils are a symbol of unrequited love. Sunday's color is yellow-gold.

    Yellow Energy

    Like the energy of a bright sunny day, yellow brings clarity and awareness. The shade of yellow determines its effect: Yellow-green can mean deceit, and creates a disoriented feeling. Orange-yellow imparts a sense of establishment. Clean light yellow clears the mind, making it active and alert.
