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?

A Lingering Look at Architecture: April ~ Yellow Houses!

Yet another fun challenge. Yellow houses…. now this did attract my eye. Is there a ‘love’ button, as I could not just ‘like’ this post by  The Day After.

This is week three of the month’s theme : “Your Favorite Color Homes” in which we are encouraged to share some of the colorful homes captured on our travels or our neighborhood.

You won’t find many yellow houses in the Australian neighbourhood,

dragør

but in Denmark: this special yellow is known in some parts as “Skagen Yellow” and my family’s ancestral home “Faergebo” was – yellow!

Sønder FeldingIsn’t it a beautiful home?

and there’s more in the Dutch – Danish fishing town of Dragør:

???????????????????????????????dragoer

and still more, in many villages from Christiansfeld to Odense:

But you will find some yellow architecture in old time Sweden too, like here:

More often, you find red houses in Norway, but then again if you look closely, you will find the Danes had a bit of an influence there too:
