Photo Challenge: Yellow

Photo Challenge day! Y'all be sure to stop by and say thank you to Tabitha for being our hostess and go to the comments at our Brenda Photo Challenge blog to visit all the other participants. And if you didn't sign up to play this time, please grab your camera and start snapping for the next one. We love to see everyone's interpretations of each challenge topic, and heck, it's just plain fun!

The yellow center of a wildflower. I just love these little dainty blooms.

The tiny pastel yellow tea cup from my tea set.

My Maximillion Sunflowers started blooming this past week. I love these. They come up from a root and grow tall all spring and summer, then bloom the last week in September. The start of this plant was given to me by my grandmother over 25 years ago. We've moved twice during that time and I always bring a bit of it along. She brought them with her every time she moved too.

I love, love, love, this big yellow bus when it comes in the mornings. I'm not so happy with it in the afternoons though.

Now, don't forget to go see what the other's have come up with for this challenge.

Keep snapping!

I always love your photos, and I really enjoy the comments that go with them! How interesting about the Maximillion Sunflowers being given to you by your grandmother!

You got some great yellow pics! You have some talent!!

We would LOVE to have you next week for PSF. One of the things I love about the meme is the new and interesting directions people take it every week. I'm really happy you found us!!

Wonderful selection! Ah, precious flowers, how can one resist? Never heard of that kind of sunflower before but it sounds intriguing! Bravo, great job!

I would be glad to e-mail you a bigger file of my aspen picture. Just post a comment on my blog with your e-mail address. I'll jot it down and then delete the comment before it gets posted. I purposely post pictures that are the standard blog size because I don't want people to "borrow" my pictures and try to use them for their own purposes. If they do, it's not a very good file, LOL.

These challenges are so much fun and I am glad to have discovered them! Thank you for "inventing" it!

Beautiful yellow pics! I thought of the bus, but not having any kids I decided not to take that one.

The flowers are gorgeous Brenda. Love that pretty teacup. The bus was a great idea. This was fun. Hey you have that big beautiful yellow tree on your banner too. I love seeing that when I visit. Have a good one.
