Yellow season is rolling out all around us. Yellow season is daffodils, forsythia, and dandelions. Some other stuff is yellow all year-round.
Under the budding forsythia at the WT PO. At least I think it’s forsythia . . .
Daffodils along the bike path in front of Vineyard Gardens, WT. Note non-organic yellow sign at left.

Dandelions are lagging behind the other yellows, or maybe the weedkillers have got ’em.
Here’s some stuff that’s yellow all year-round.
Bananas is only the latest incarnation of this North Tisbury shop. Note yellow line out front.
Yellow sign, yellow line
Yellow allowed. Everyone else, go away.
Orange you glad I didn’t say yellow?

Yellow is a happy color and we need some “happy” this week…..
Love your observations… and Dan’s! (However, my five and Travvy might dispute the value of yellow snow – both the creating and the sniffing of same.q
You made me laugh with the ‘orange’ comment.
I think one of the reasons people like yellow so much is that it’s the first burst of color after the darker colors of winter. Yellow has always been a favorite color of mine, I especially like it in my kitchen.
Yellow flowers are definitely preferable to yellow snow!
Now I wonder where all the yellow came from. The lesson of yellow snow: Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Now I’m wondering if they still make Pepsodent toothpaste — you know, “You’ll wonder where the yellow went / when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent”?
Jealous! We had snow and freezing rain here (Ottawa, Canada) on Friday.
BTW, what does the last sign mean? I’ve never seen one like that.
Where the North Road runs into State Road there’s a grassy triangle where it forks left and right. The reflectorized sign is to make sure that nighttime motorists fork and don’t run into the tree. 🙂 We’ve got other intersections like that, most of them unlit, and they usually have some sort of reflectors on them.
Aha! Useful idea.
