Isn’t yellow a lively, cheery color? When I think of August, I think of heat, which makes me think of cloudless, sunny skies, at least out here in the West. I’ve always associated the month of August with the color yellow.
You guessed it, this week’s Sunday Stills theme is anything yellow.
I added “mellow” to my yellow to take the edge off, but our summers here are anything but mellow. Maybe it won’t seem so hot!
Jennifer Bourne, fellow local blogger and co-producer of the Sacramento WordPress Meet-Up and lead organizer for WordCamp Sacramento shared:
“Studies show that the meaning of the color yellow can be warmth, cheerfulness, increased mental activity, increased muscle energy. The color yellow helps activate the memory, encourage communication, enhance vision, build confidence, and stimulate the nervous system.”https://www.bourncreative.com/meaning-of-the-color-yellow/
Lest you think this post is all about my backyard sunflowers, I assure you there is more to see.
This busy bee was anything but mellow as I watched her pollen-laden body flit among the sunflowers last week. I luckily caught her in flight!
Even my miracle pink plumerias have stolen a little sunflower yellow!
To keep us cool in the hot August heat, I share these images of fun in the sun on and near the water.
A great start to the morning. Sunrise over the Sea of Cortez in La Ventana, Baja Mexico.
Windsurfer getting the last of the wind and golden rays before sundown.
These kayaks and yellow stand-up paddleboards at Lake Natoma beckon visitors to come take a ride and cool off!
These boys had the right idea of playing on the beach in Coronado.
Later in the Fall, the color yellow will be everywhere. This is a look at last Fall’s ginkgo trees on the Sacramento State University campus.
Flower images are inspired in part by Cee’s Flower of the Day photo challenge.
