Mellow Yellow Monday is a photo forum. You post something yellow on Monday. “Because life is better with a splash of yellow.”
Be sure and visit the other participants to see how creative everone is with their yellow shots. You’ll be amazed, y’all!
Well, if not amazed, then mellowed out. How’s that for a Monday?
I feel a little blah today. The weather is dreary and chilly. I was hoping for one of those wonderful Indian Summer days, that North Carolina is famous for in November, since it’s my only day off his week. Maybe a little dash of yellow will brighten my day.
This black and yellow spider is a female Argiope aurantia , commonly known as the Black and Yellow Garden Spider, Writing Spider, Banana Spider or Corn Spider. She was living in our lantana this summer. These spiders are carnivorous (they eat flies and grasshoppers) and harmless to humans.
We have a field near our house that we walk to with our rottweiler dog and our calico cat. (Yes, they both have to go on the walks.) This is a just a weed that grows wild over there. I have no idea what it is – maybe some of y’all can identify it?
Finally, my husband bought me this bouquet of fall flowers for no reason. Well, I guess maybe there was a reason. Because he loves me. There. I feel better already.
When you have the blahs, what do you do to make yourself feel better? Does yellow help, do you think? Or do you have a comfort food that you eat, or a favorite sweater that you wear? Do you crawl back into bed or get dolled up and go somewhere? Let me know what works for you!
