Manic Mondays With Mo #4 "Yellow"

This Week's Theme: Yellow

When I think of YELLOW, the first thing that comes to mind is Spring! I love to see the beautiful daffodils bloom. To me it is the first sign of spring. It also reminds me that Easter is near. I can remember many years hunting easter eggs at home with my sisters and brother and finding lots of eggs hidden within the many wild daffodils that grew in our yard.

Spring is my favorite time of the year. It is like a fresh start for mother nature. I love to see the beautiful flowers begin to bud and bloom in my yard. I love the smell of fresh flowers! It also brings back a great memory I have of my grandmother. She was a very outdoorsy person. I remember that she always had lots of flower beds in her yard. I can remember one time picking a flower for her out of her flower bed. She was NOT happy with me. I never could figure out why until I was grown and my own daughter did it to me! There was also another time when I picked some of those tiny yellow wild flowers that grow in the grass and took her a handfull of them. Her eyes immediately began to water and turn red. She thanked me and put them in a glass of water and put them in the window sill. I remember mom telling me many years later that Grandma was allergic! She never told me, though. She didn't want to hurt my feelings.

YAY! All my "visitor-leftovers" who had conquered our place after Luis christening last week are gone - I can get my daily dose of "Crazy Working Mom" again =)

I love the pictures you´ve chosen - the first one is too cute. I´m so looking forward to Spring-time... can´t wait to arrange the first sunny trip/picnic... but it´s still grey and hazy outside in my part of the world.

Add me to the list of people waiting for Spring... my favorite season for sure. New life in the flower gardens, new life in the fields, snow melted away, warm weather without being too hot... I totally endorse Spring!

I really like the story of picking flowers for your Grandmother. What a wonderful woman she must be/have been.

A great "yellow" post, and beautiful flower pictures.

Flowers are the greatest and spring is my favorite. It seems so far away.

Daffodils are most definitely one of the best things about Spring! I love seeing them start to pop up as that means that Spring is definitely on the way and, right now, it can't come soon enough! We haven't had a horrible winter but I've had enough and am ready for some warm weather and flowers!
