Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Yellow

Yellow features in Bee Gees Way

It is Spring in the northern hemisphere, whilst we in the South, prepare for Autumn. Australian native plants don’t follow a strict regime of flowering as they do in the North. Some flower all year round. That is Australia – the land of eternal sun.

At least the Xanthostemon flowers below think so – Try saying that after a glass of wine!

Friendly Friday Photo Prompt

As you might have guessed, the prompt for the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge, this week, is:

YELLOW

Japan might be in the north, but I found plenty of yellow there too.

Denmark may have closed its border, but I can visit my homeland via these photos of the famous “Skagen Yellow” houses.

Food can be yellow too – and I do like Cake. Usually lemon flavoured, just so you know in case you come to mine for tea.

Bored at home in lock down? Feel like doing a bit of interior decorating?

I will take you to Kyoto for 30 seconds. With Yellow leaves and all. The courtyard of quirky Artist – Yayao Kusama.

      1. I wish I had a favorite lemon cake recipe but I don’t. I usually just google one when I’m in the mood. I do have an amazing caramelized orange cheesecake recipe, though. I confess that I’ve never made it… I ask my husband to make every year for my birthday ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. So your husband is interested in cooking/baking! Awesome! I would be interested in having a look at that recipe for my son. I used to love cheesecake but can’t eat it anymore. He on the other hand really enjoys it, if you would like to share?

  1. What a happy color yellow is…isn’t it? And lemon cake? I can eat it anytime, all day long …doesn’t speak too well of my eating habits though ๐Ÿ˜ฆ This is a lovely post and while I have missed quite a few FFPC recently, I am going to try to participate this time. The houses are my favorite! And that yellow courtyard of Yayao Kusama brought back memories of a dress I had when I was around ten or twelve, a beautiful happy yellow with black polka dots!!!! I am going to try and find a photo of me from times forgotten and if I can, will share it in the post. Thanks for splashing this uplifting color into this upside down world<3<3

          1. Lemon cake is on the menu for next weekend! I just added a list of ingredients to my grocery list and I will think about you and remember this time to take a pic and send you…I forgot with the eggnog…I made it and it was lovely but I did not take a picture ๐Ÿ˜ฆ This time will be different! Hugs

            1. I am so glad you liked the eggnog. That seems like so long ago now. I will wait to hear the verdict on the lemon cake. I am making cinnamon cake today, and pumpkin scones.

    1. That one is a link to Kusama, so not my photo. Thanks for reminding me that I should point that out. Although I do have one from the inside of the gallery, it is not as clear as that one, of course.

    1. Although I will never visit Las Vegas, I would watch this display. It looks fantastic. I have heard of it from other friends who have visited.
      Thanks for joining in with the Friendly Friday photo challenge, Tatiana. I hope to see you again for future prompts? Are you a photography buff?

  3. I do like your selection of photos, a very bright and cheerful line up which we could all use these days. I particularly like the Japanese artist, the frangipane (plumeria here) and the parrot. I hope all is well with you.

    1. Thanks for asking how I am, Graham. I am doing great. I think. One never knows these days, if something sinister might be brewing. We are careful though. My husband positively shrunk back in horror today when a shop assistant wanted to hand him a sales receipt without a gloved hand! I think he is getting a little paranoid. He didn’t even realize he did it.
      As for the Frangipani, we both have a climate well suited to these flowers. You can just break off a branch and shove it in some soil, and hey presto, it grows and flowers! Do you also have the climbing Allamanda growing in your district. Also a bright yellow flower.

      1. I’m the opposite to your husband. I tend to forget that I’m supposed to be distancing myself or not handing something over or taking a pen that might kill me. Consequently, I’ve been getting a few looks of panic thrown my way as if I’m some kind of crazed assailant. Ah well.
        As to the Allamanda, we do have that and it can get quite rampant if not controlled. The yellow is most often seen but there’s also a purple one that I’ve seen and perhaps other colors.

  4. Hiya, how are you doing? Of your yellow theme, my favourites are the frangipani and lemon cake. I have not started baking yet, but think am gonna bake a blood orange almond cake soon. After all, when in doubt, bake! x

      1. “It was a wonderful experience getting that close to them.” This begs a little more information and makes me curious. What does ” that close to them” mean?

        1. In the Maleny Bird Park there is a large walk in aviary, where in the birds will be as close as a foot away from you. Some of them fly down on your shoulders and head too! Does that explain it?

          1. Yes, my dear, it does. Sounds like a fun walk.
            The closest we have to that here is a butterfly dome. New butterflies from around the world are released daily. They too land on people.
            Every year, I want to go, but haven’t made it yet. Maybe this year.
