I think this is my third blog in a series of shots that I took giving colors to the day. At first it was orange, then white, let’s have it in yellow today. Life in our neighborhood is a quiet life, it’s the noise of the vehicles, tricycles and motorcycles that shatter the peace and quiet. All our streets were named after flowers. One such stretch that I love is the street perpendicular to ours which is called Aster. Our two village gardeners have planted annuals lining the sidewalk and it is a sight to see the yellow colors of blooms facing the sun.
And I was wondering why they didn’t plant Aster flowers to fit the name of the street instead of these lovely Cosmos blooms only to find out that the latter are also called Mexican Aster :) They are eye-catching and when the wind blows, they sway in the gentle breeze. They don’t need much maintenance.
Cannas are always a delight to look at. They stand majestic along the sidewalk and come in varied colors of orange, red and yellow.
And these Golden Candles are also a sight to behold. Do you know that the flowers are the white tips and not the yellow ones?
Don’t you just love this yellow lamp-post? It blends well with the Canna and Cosmos flowers.
I don’t exactly know the name of this tree but it is similar to a flame tree, the flowers just come in yellow colors.
It’s a yellow morning, at least in my part of the world! And do you know that yellow symbolizes wisdom? Yellow also means joy and happiness. Be happy!
